“The Irish in Film,” the free movie series sponsored by the Irish Studies Program at Fairfield University, concludes on Wednesday, April 24, with the final of four diverse films. The series, now in its fifth year, is part of Fairfield University’s Arts & Minds season of cultural and intellectual programs.
The series concludes on Wednesday, April 24, with "The Irish R.M." (1983), a classic television series. When Major Sinclair Yeates leaves his home in England to work as the Irish Resident Magistrate, he finds that the justice system needs tempering somewhat to suit the local needs - and that not everything is as straight-forward as it appears on the surface. Professor Marion White will introduce the film.
The films will be shown in the multimedia room of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. Fairfield University welcomes the public to these free screenings. Light refreshments will be served.
Dr. Nels Pearson, director of the Irish Studies Program, will host the presentations. He will be joined by other Irish Studies professors, who will field questions after the films.
