Film Friday: Top Irish Movies

Leave a comment

St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner. A few years ago for the “Wearing of the Green Day,” I featured outstanding Irish writers. If you missed the blog, here is a link to it.

 Today on this Film Friday, I thought I’d feature the top ten Irish movies. I’m going to put “My Left Foot,” a story about a disabled artist, poet and writer on my list. I’ve been hoping to see this movie for quite some time now, and still haven’t.Click for Info & Ordering

Here is the list. To read summaries of each of these movies, please go to, through this link.

  • The  Commitments
  • The Quiet Man
  • My Left Foot
  • The Field
  • In the Name of the Father
  • Intermission
  • The Snapper
  • The Crying Game
  • Once
  • Waking Ted Devine

On Monday, Irish writing prompts will be the subject on All Things Fulfilling. I’ll be offering some lead sentences that might just be the thing you need to start writing your tale about Irish gents or ladies who have been in your lineage. No one can tell better stories than the Irish because there are many colorful characters to draw from in most Irish families.
