A charming, funny and poignant film, OLDER THAN IRELAND tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians.
Explore each centenarian’s journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life in modern day Ireland as they reflect on such events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, the magic of their wedding day and the loss of their loved ones.
Having witnessed a century of immense social, political and technological change each centenarian has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning. In OLDER THAN IRELAND you will meet a colourful cast of characters eager to share their wit and wisdom; from the oldest Irish person ever on record, 113-year-old Kathleen Snavely to Ireland’s oldest man, 108-year-old Luke Dolan. Their extraordinary stories are our living history.

As The Dublin Senior Footballers ran out against Kerry in the All Ireland Final at the magnificent Croke Park, the Kingdom had already won the earlier Minor Final in emphatic fashion. Could Kerry do the Double? The tension was split between the 80,000 fans . This was going to be close. Dublin had to overcome a well organised Fermanagh team before facing a confident Mayo in the last four. After a pulsating drawn semi-final the boys in blue finally put them away in the replay. Kerry, the holders, had already scored 7-12 against a fancied Kildare in the quarter finals and overturned a strong Tyrone team in the semis. It was going to be a tense, tactical and tough final between the two in-form squads of the year. No quarter was expected or given. When the final whistle sounded the 2014 champions were beaten and The Dubs once again paraded the Sam Maguire trophy ‘through the streets broad & narrow’.

The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Final was listed in second place by global broadcast giant CNN in its ’10 sporting events you have to see’ – after the Olympic Games and ahead of the FIFA World Cup. Our National sport is widely regarded as the oldest, fastest and most exciting field sport in the world. In the 21st century nobody plays hurling like Kilkenny – the best hurling team in the world. Manager Brian Cody had amazingly won 10 All Ireland titles in 15 years but this time the champions were without the inspirational Henry Sheflin. Would the day belong to a new group of hurling heroes? At a sold out Croke Park, could a hugely talented Galway team beat the almighty Cats and lift The Liam McCarthy Cup for the first time in 30 years?
