Movie Reviews

The 5-Shamrock Program
Joe Foy | Nova Scotia, Canada | 02/05/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fantastic series on the Irish re-settlements in America, Australia, England and around the world. Engaging, fascinating, moving, full of things you've not heard or seen before. This is the Irish equivalent of Ken Burns' series on the American Civil War -- and just as good! Those who already know a lot about the Irish migrations and achievements will discover more. If you are a beginner, this is the place to start! Why did they go, when did they go, where did they go, what happened when they got there, what happened in Ireland after they left -- you will be surprised again and again. Two-thumbs up!"
