Ireland’s Own

Director: Gerry Nelson

‘Tucked away in a fusty corner of the Independent Newspaper’s empire lives an unusual weekly journal. Unlike its sister titles, this 100 year old magazine avoids celebrity, contention and event advertisers, a publishing conundrum.’
Gerry Nelson’s affectionate portrait of the Irish institution that is Ireland’s Own features interviews with the editor and staff, loyal readers and a variety of contributors from Maeve Binchy to Leo Bowes – who submitted his first article 45 years ago when he was 12 and who still contributes regularly. Packed full of fantastic facts, heart-warming tales and homespun wisdom, Ireland’s Own provides a perfect match to its subject matter.
