The Silver Branch - for the love of The Burren

Mon, Sep 24, 2018

PATRICK MCCORMACK is a poet, philosopher, and farmer. He is also the owner of ‘Fr Ted’s House’ in the Burren, County Clare, and is the subject of a film, which ponders a disappearing way of life, and our connections to the natural world.

The Silver Branch, directed by Katrina Costello, will be screened in the Town Hall Theatre on Wednesday October 3 at 8pm. A feature documentary, it is a meditation on nature, landscape, agrarian culture, a search for ‘unity of being’, the clash between idealism and reality, and the battle between preservation and construction - as seen through the eyes, and the poetry, of Patrick McCormack.
