Anecdotes aplenty and good ones at that.

The Press Reviews

  • Alex Fegan's documentary Older Than Ireland pursues a simple but very effective premise - interviewing Irish men and women who, at 100-plus, are older than the state itself. Full Review

  • Fegan may not unearth why the Emerald Isle is home to so many spirited centenarians, but their presence makes for a lovely and inspiring experience in the enjoyable documentary "Older Than Ireland." Full Review

  • It's often said that the Irish, blessed with the gift of gab, can be splendid raconteurs. You'll find generous evidence to that effect here. And a bit of poetry as well. Full Review

  • A charming, moving and over-too-soon portrait of a country, and of what it means to have a longer than expected life. Full Review

  • Though never managing to surprise us much, this brisk encounter with the living past has moments of charm and the occasional fresh perspective. Full Review
