In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America

Narrated by Liam Neeson with an original musical score by Bill Whelan.

This 90-minute documentary by Maurice Fitzpatrick tells of how John Hume cultivated the support of a succession of US presidents to help forge peace in Northern Ireland and why Bill Clinton (top right) called him the ‘Martin Luther King of Northern Ireland politics”.

This November 17, In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America will be released in select IMC Cinemas nationwide (Dublin Savoy, IMC Tallaght, IMC Santry, IMC Dun Laoghaire, IMC Athlone, IMC Carlow, IMC Dundalk, IMC Galway, IMC Ballymena, IMC Enniskillen and IMC Omagh).

A tradition almost as old as the pagan feast itself

Helene Duffy writes:

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Halloween? Following tradition, here are those lovely pumpkins (picture 1) from Smithfield [Dublin 7] again!

Also I’m living abroad so in picture 2 are some bonus pumpkins from Japan!

In fairness.

Can you name the characters in the Smithfield pumpkin picture, anyone?
