Footage from 1934 Ireland including some rarely-now-sung songs, with the old Claddagh village, Killarney, Youghal (Ralegh's house…), etc

What a paradise America seemed then - refrigerators; automobiles - a working man able to buy them; good public schools, free and local; plenty work if you were willing… how different today…

Dear lord give me the strength to forgive my ancestors for allowing these hollywood types to make such a terrible film' full of lies and music that has no Irish heritage at all. I gave up at the bit which said we burn turf because Ireland has no coal mines. Me and my ancestors hail from Kilkenny one of the richest mining areas in Europle. famed for not just it's COAL but the finest Black marble in the world. At least three of my family died in Kilkenny's COAL MINES. lord save us from the sheer ignorance of foreigners!

I suffered the film right the way through. How patronising can you get!And whilst crops may well have grown well, there was still massive poverty and even starvation in the cities at that time.

If you ignore the shamrock-bestrewn voiceover it's interesting, though - especially being able to see the Claddagh village, long since replaced by modern housing with no geese. And I've never before seen a turf cart that was clearly handmade from branches. I found it fascinating.

Coal has been extracted from several small deposits in Ireland over the years - never enough to make a significant economic impact. Marble, of course, doesn't burn! ;>)>
