Prospects Of Ireland (1970)
24 minutes - Colour

'Worthy are the Irish to dwell in this their land. A race of men renowned in war, in peace, in faith', So,admiringly, wrote Bishop Donatus in the ninth century of the Christian era. Today, eleven hundred stormy years later, it is to Ireland that the admiring people travel. They go for uncrowded beaches: for golf, sailing and riding; for fishing at sea or in trout streams and salmon rivers; for reminders of antiquity - and also for simple tranquillity amongst people of charm, hospitality and wit; for the chance to refresh their bodies and minds by contact with the elemental realities of life. A labour of love by John Shearman.
