Powerful documentary to screen at Colgan Hall on Saturday night
A powerful new documentary about the life and times of Clonmany storyteller Charles McGlinchey will premiere at the Colgan Hall in Carn this Saturday night, November 19.
The film – ‘The Last Of The Name’, titled after McGlinchey’s book of the same name – is directed by Culdaff father and daughter team, Paul and Kate McCarroll, and features contributions from several local historians.
The McCarrolls also recruited a team of local talent to assist with production, including Seamus O’Donnell and actor Paul Kelly, who plays McGlinchey in a series of reconstructed monologues.
The documentary also includes some of Inishowen’s finest music, with compositions from Tom Byrne, Finbarr Doherty and the Henry Girls.
Director Kate McCarroll says the film’s local input has been key.
“This is an important Inishowen story, and the nicest thing for us is to be allowed to make a film about it. And even better – to do so with a team who are almost all from the locality. From the music to the acting, it’s a magical array of talent!”
