Ireland’s submission for the Foreign Language category at the 90th annual Academy Awards, Song of Granite revolves around the life of the great Irish trad-singer, Joe Heaney.

The harsh landscape combined with the myths, fables and songs of his Connemara childhood helped shape this complex and fascinating character.

B’fhearr Liom na Sléibhte, a short film, by local filmmaker Nuala Dalton, about the musical traditions around the Blackstairs will screen in advance of the feature film.
