I enjoyed that. Toward the end, the people likened the statues of the women to Africans. How appropriate. Perhaps the donkeys can be changed for a few camels and the island would then surely be an ideal refugee centerThis delightful film tells more on the background to Peig's books. I think it's the English scholar, Robin Flower, who is speaking.
Are you telling us there is a recording of Ned Kelly. There was a pub in Dorchester called Ned Kellysire-land, if u want a nice short read, u will read nothing better than ned kelly's letter - the jerilderie letter( its online). he dictated it but another lad wrote it down. he is trying to explain how things have got to the position he was in and lets them know he is not going to back down. inspiring. his mother was actually sent to hard labour and this was the straw that broke the camels back for ned. ned cud write but his schooling was cut short when he had to take over his fathers role in the home at a young age. he loved school and learning when a young lad and was in no way an ignoramus. he was a true irishman in his love for language. also as a lad he rescued a fellow schoolmate from drowning and received a green and gold scarf/cumberbund type of thing from the family of the lad. he wore it under his steel armor the day of the showdown. like most, i was a fan of his anyways, but when u hear him speaking in his own voice, u get a real sense of what was a great wild gaelic hearted human being trapped in a fucked up unfair shitstem. God be good to Ned.
