click on photo for movie trailer

Written by Bob Geldof & Roy Foster

Geldof traces W.B. Yeat’s life, from his earliest family trips to Rosses Point in Sligo to his Nobel prize and role as Senator in the new Free State. Controversially, he contends that Yeats deserves a place ahead
of the martyrs of 1916
– because, he argues, rather than sacrifice his life for Ireland, Yeats stayed alive to fight for a secular, just and truly inclusive Ireland.
