a life

Directors Note.

“I’m not sure what it is with Ireland. I feel more at home here than any place else. There’s no Irish blood, no history, no good reason for it, but that’s the way it is and how it always has been. Perhaps it’s better to be simply grateful rather than question these things. It was a river that first brought me here. I came to catch a fish, but it seems it was, in fact, me who was caught.

It was on the banks of an Irish river that I met Connie. We fished together, we drank tea, we talked. It was as though he’d stood in the river for so long that all the hard edges of his character had been washed away, leaving behind a truly gentle man. To be in his company was both educational and therapeutic. I can’t remember if I caught a fish or not. But as Connie will tell you – that’s not what it’s all about.”
