Fifty years after his death in October 1971, his granddaughter; musician and broadcaster Doireann Ní Ghlacáin (top), resolves to find out more about this divisive and iconic figure. As she investigates her own heritage, by charting her grandfather’s life and times, we uncover the true Ó Riada in a moving tribute to this giant of Irish cultural life.

This is a seminal feature length documentary which gives an intimate portrayal of Seán Ó Riada like never seen before. Produced by Táin Media alongside multi-Oscar nominated Executive Producer Jim Sheridan for TG4, with support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund and University College Cork.
