Happy St Pattys Day! (Best Irish Movie and Best Diaspora?) Posted on March 18, 2023 by Anonymous Irish - Banshees Diaspora - The Departed
>i don't wanna be your cheese eatin rat no more
There never were any snakes in Ireland.
Black 47 is a good film about the famine
Just watched The Quiet Girl. Very good comfy film.
This girl looks so Irish. Blue eyes, brown hair, faint eyebrows, small mouth, very pale skintone. Seen many girls have that same look.
She's just missing a couple bruises here and there.
I don't like your "movie", never found a single "quality" in it and is very glad it got zero awards, because everyone saw that it was miserable irish shit full of irish misery that no one liked, irishman
I hate Americans.
The correct term is "Plastic Paddies". Most obnoxious diaspora, though it does crack me up how African leaders are starting to use the term diaspora to appeal to angel investors among their former slaves.
Whose death was more tragic, Dominic or the donkey?
Watched The Quiet Man like I do every St. Patrick's Day. Beautiful movie, and even though I have no Irish in me, it makes me feel right at home every time I watch it.
They shot it all on the border of Co. Mayo and Co. Galway, in Cong and Ashford and Tuam. My girlfriend is from Galway and her grandad Brendan was an extra in one of the scene set in 'Innisfree'. When I went to visit last year we went into the wool shop where they had knitted the Donegal overcoat that John Wayne wears in the film, and the lady who was in there remembered being a kid when they were shooting it. She also remembered every elderly member of my girlfriend's extended family, but that's to be expected in rural Ireland.
connemara is mad nice tbf
and my favorite whisky
banshees is a diaspora film, made by a london irish diasporoid, primarily aimed at a non-irish audience, and very much depicting a fiddle-dee-dee tourist's version of ireland
out of all both mcdonagh's work, i would say Calvary (2014) is better. But I think In the Name of the Father or Wind That Shakes the Barley are the best actually irish films (despite one not not having that many irish actors and the other being directed by a brit)
>despite one not not having that many irish actors and the other being directed by a brit
But Ireland is part of Britain?
>No Divorcing Jack
Embarassing yank shite.

You Will Never Be Irish
As long as I've got hate in me heart and liquor in me blood, I'm as Irish as the kiss o' the clover
I want to thank the anon who recced this. Pure kino.
I have a few Irish family members and they talk fondly of Ireland but never want to return like Mexicans.
You will never be a real Irishman
NAME OF THE ROSE! Even though it's not explicitly Irish
>I'm just a hooligan who's used to usin' hallucinogens
>Causin' illusions again, brain contusions again
>Cutting and bruising the skin, raise the scissors and pins
>Jayysus, when does it end? Phases that I go through
>Dazed and not so confused, days that I don't know who
>Gave these molecules to me, what am I gon' do?
>Hey, the prodigal son, the diabolical one
>Very methodical when I slaughter them
All diaspora morons must fucking hang
My ancestors left Cork and somehow ended up in San Fagcisco during the gold rush. I'd say that's a better outcome than ending up in Massagarden gnomesetts.
