Boy meets girl. Boy emigrates.
A tale as old as time.
From the TCD film archive:
The Lad from Old Ireland (1910) is regarded by some as the first American-produced fiction film made outside the USA… It may have been the first integrated fiction film made in Ireland. The available print, with intertitles in German, ends with the penultimate scene, at the cottage.
