Irish Movie Night: The Minnitts of Annabeg (2012)













Given it's a US premiere and touches upon the Great Hunger period thought this may be a good idea for a Thursday evening. An RSVP here is simply letting me know to look out for you, as you must purchase your tickets directly from the NY Irish Center via

Hope to see you there - always a great crowd!

Based on the true lives of the Minnitt family from Tipperary who owned over 1,000 acres of land at Anabeg House in Nenagh during
the Great Hunger. Frank McGrath plays Joshua Minnitt, an English Justice of the Peace, disinherited by his father after marrying a
Catholic girl. He works to save a community and to save his own family.

    The movie was not great but it was interesting to see something specifically about this period in Irish history.
