GAEIL NUA EABHRAC- The Irish New Yorkers.

Real Films are making a documentary series on the Irish people in New York. We are looking for Irish speakers who would be interested in sharing their New York story with us.

For 250 years Irish people have immigrated to New York. Beginning and ending in 2011 this two hour series will weave a tapestry of stories from all walks of New York Irish life ; sporting; the gaa, business, theatre, film, music, the police department, fire department, the church, fashion and the ubiquitous symbol of Irishness the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. From the bars on MacClean Avenue to the stage of the Irish Reportory; the stories of the undocumented to the self made millionaires; The Irish New Yorkers will tell the unique story of a people who fought hard to create the most successful Irish society abroad and those today with its future in its hands.

If you speak Irish and would like to find out more please contact Producer Aideen Kane, at the details below.

When I lived in New York I used to drink in the Beacon Tavern in Woodside, there was at the time people from Iorras who were fluent in Irish and a large contingent of Gaoth Dobhair people.
