Description

Song of Granite, featuring performances from Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, Séamus Begley and sean-nós singers Micheál O'Confhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin, the film is an intense exploration of music and song, portrays the life of the great traditional Irish singer, Joe Éinniú. The beautiful yet harsh landscape combined with the myths, fables and songs of his Connemara childhood helped shape this complex and gifted character. Enigmatic and fascinating, Éinniú’s devotion to his art came at a huge personal cost to him and those closest to him.

Directed by Pat Collins, the film is produced by Alan Maher and Jessie Fisk of Marcie Films. (Duration 1h 44m)

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with one of its writers, Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríde, as well as other distinguished guests.
