  • "TG4's Déithe na Spéire (The Gods of the Sky), made by award winning Tile Films, features new findings that suggest a shower of meteorites helped Christian monks to convert the pagan masses in ancient times. Experts, such as Celtic scholar Patrick McCafferty, explain how ancient Irish people changed from worshipping gods in the earth to gods in the sky - and eventually this helped bishops like St Patrick convert them to the new Christian Church. " See Déithe na Spéire on TG4 on Wednesday February 4th at 9.30pm

  • "A Terrible Beauty," its title taken from a famous poem by W.B. Yeats and premiering at 8 p.m. Friday 26th September and 3 p.m. Sunday the 28th September at the Siskel Film Center, is a docudrama of extraordinary power. It is about bullets flying and bodies falling, but it will capture you on a deeply personal level.

  • A Terrible Beauty 1916-2016 is an ongoing project which has grown out of the TG4 docudrama A Terrible Beauty/Áille an Uafáis which dealt with events during the 1916 Easter Rising from a fresh and unbiased perspective. It is a "Living History" project that will consist of a digital portal for the stories of the participants and living relative of those involved in the Rising in Dublin, including those who led the fight for Irish freedom, those who opposed it, and those - both the famous and unknown - who were caught up in its wake. It will chronicle and preserve vital individual stories as a resource for all.

  • ‘What a remarkable film, 'A Terrible Beauty'. The Irish language with sub-titles, the even-handed portrayal of both sides, the documentary style with the personal stories and the archive film footage and the close-up horror of death. It was gripping - without the 'Hollywood' style 'glamorising' of war.’ Ann Towey, Irish Diaspora Foundation.
