More to Know
I am Ireland was inspired by Mise Éire, a feature-length film produced by George Morrison in 1959. The film is based on the poem by Padraic Pearse, who wrote the 1916 Proclamation of the Republic.
The smash-hit film was presented by Irish Language Organization Gael-Linn and used archival film footage to present the story of Ireland’s fight for independence through the 1916 Easter Rising. It showcased original compositions of Seán Ó Riada, whose arrangement of the 16th-century traditional Irish song Róisin Dubh (My Dark Rosaleen) is used to introduce this PBS production of “I Am Ireland.”
