This afternoon.

The Spire, O’Connell Street, Dublin 1

Some members of Ireland’s Tibetan community hold a vigil to mark the 58th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising of 1959 and the 9th anniversary of the Uprisings of 2008, when thousands of Tibetans rose up against China’s occupation of Tibet.

Tibetans and supporters mark March 10 each year to show solidarity with Tibetans inside Tibet and to honour and support the resistance to Chinese rule that continues to this day.

A ‘Defiant’, chirpier return.

Rory Walsh writes:

After becoming thoroughly downhearted while making one of our last projects we here at Spire Productions decided we would like to make something a bit more positive at the earliest opportunity.

So we took our cameras down to Scoil Chaitríona national school in Renmore, Galway a few months back and made a mini documentary called Up She Flew.
It documents the presentation of our national flag and a copy of the 1916 proclamation to the students as well as the raising of the flag on Proclamation day.

Up she flew will become part of our next full length documentary ‘Green Towards the Head’ which will explore modern Irish life through the eye’s of people with connections to our national flag.

If any of your readers have some sort of connection to the Irish flag, we would love to hear from them at spirefilm@gmail.com
