In honor of the great showing Irish talent and Irish stories made at this past weekend’s Oscars, and of Saint Patrick’s Day coming up on Friday:
What’s your favorite Irish-related film or movie tidbit?
This could be a movie by or about the Irish or Ireland (including anything connected to the Irish diaspora), or a bit of production trivia. Like this: I love that the Cliffs of Insanity in The Princess Bride was shot at a real place, the Cliffs of Moher in county Clare, which was named a UNESCO Global Geopark in 2011.

I loved the films Once and Brooklyn.
Also love the stuff Clannad has composed for TV and film. “I Will Find You” for Last of the Mohicans is good. Even better is their evocative score for the series Robin of Sherwood, especially “Robin (The Hooded Man),” which is one of my favorite theme songs.
I love Clannad’s Robin of Sherwood score!
