Ireland: The Legendary Waters of Ireland

Ireland: Legendary Waters of Ireland, The

"Recommended. An ageless classic, expertly written and narrated, that offers the history of Ireland through its architecture, people, art and geography." -Booklist
"The waters of Ireland flow from legend into history. We've heard of St. Patrick and his wonder working...of the Celtic twilight and its fairies...of the ghosts in old Irish houses...we know of the Blarney Stone, and the luck it brings. The waters of Ireland flow from the past, lapping softly against the shores of the present." So begins this unforgettable journey, which beautifully tells the history of Ireland, traveling through its most magnificent waterways. Here is a masterpiece of storytelling, a work of art in filming, writing, music and narration, and an ingenious way to explore this beautiful country. As we travel Ireland's rivers, lakes and canals, we are enfolded in a landscape of stories, stories of battles and conquest of religious conversion and love, stories that produced the Ireland we know today. From Tara, the center of the Earth in Celtic history, to Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Athlone, we learn fascinating histories and legends about each. And by traveling upon the Grand Canal, the Boyne and Shannon rivers, and the lakes of Killarney, we see first-hand why Ireland's waterways are more than just water - they carry the history of its people as they flow. Narrated by Dierdre Donnelly. Written by John Crowley. Produced by Lenra Productions. 00/08DE IJSCA 60 min.
