It is really good to be asked to do something which you enjoy and watch a project go forward to become a success. I was asked by Dr. Jenny Butler, a Folklorist at UCC, if I and my druid grove would be interested in taking part in a documentary film that Tile Films of Dublin were proposing to make.
I sounded out the members of the Owl Grove for their views and a majority decision was made so we contacted the film company.
About a month before the filming was to start two members were unable to take part. As I had set the number at twelve participants I approached an old friend of mine from years back who was living down in Co. Waterford, as I knew she was a druid. Fortunately for me she agreed to take part and bring along one of her sons who is a fluent Irish scholar. The rest is history.
Today, I am delighted to be able to congratulate the executives and staff of
Tile Films who were awarded a Bronze World Medal for their 45 minute documentary film Sacred Sites: Ireland.
Not only is it a great achievement for Tile Films, based in Dublin, it is also great for Ireland.
The Owl Grove members who took part were:
Áine-Maire, Claire, Colin, Flynn, Fred, Jane, Majella, Mel, Patsy, Rita, Siobhán and Vinnie.
