Epona BS: Ban on 'The Wind That Shakes The Barley' (318* d) RE: BS: Ban on 'The Wind That Shakes The Barley' 19 Jul 06

I leave for a bit and things are relatively the same!

Kiwi, welcome to the group.Have you read Tom Barry's "Guerilla Days"? If not, I'd be happy to post it over to you. I'm amassing quite a library of Irish history books.

Good to see we're multiplying, hey Tir? On the serious side, though, for centuries, the people in power have been the ones to dictate the contents of history. The lives of the poor or insignificant were forgotten, discarded. Our lives today, though, have given us the opportunity to tell our stories or those that have been forgotten. Keith, this film tells a moving and important piece of history. It may not speak to your taste or sensibilities, but it doesn't make the film any less valuable to society. If his work makes even one person think about the Irish struggle for freedom then it's done its job.

Great to see you guys again! Welcome aboard, Kiwi.


PS Forgive any spelling mistakes. I'm doing this on my Blackberry.
