The Irish In America: Long Journey Home (1998)

Here's a documentary series I've been meaning to track down for years. Directed by Thomas Lennon it includes musical contributions from the likes of The Chieftains, Elvis Costello, and Sinead O'Connor. I've enjoyed the soundtrack but I've never actually managed to see the documentaries before. Thanks to the wonders of youtube here it is in its entirety. Having not watched it yet I can't say it's definitely worth a watch but I'll update this post when I get a chance to give it a look. It comes in four parts.

Part 1: The Great Hunger (88 mins)

Part 2: All Across America (117 mins)

Part 3: Up From City Streets (88 mins)
Part 4: Success (60 mins)
