BBC – Séamus Ó Grianna: Saol Corrach (2021)
English | Documentary | Size: 899 MB

The life, work and contradictions of one of the most important Ulster Irish writers of the 20th century, who rejected the state’s revival of his native tongue.

Séamus Ó Grianna was a gifted novelist, lyricist and activist from Rannafast in the Donegal Gaeltacht who shaped his local dialect into a national literary language. While he was a pioneering and prolific writer, a tireless campaigner for Ulster Irish and a thorn in the side of successive Dublin governments, at the end of his career he wrote that he regretted ever writing one word of Irish.

Despite his lack of support for the Irish government’s Irish language policies, he is still the most revered and taught Irish language author in Ulster’s schools.
