Belinda McKeon discusses inspiration and writing her book Solace; Jim Sheridan discusses Irish-American film and culture reception– and, with Gabriel Byrne, fathers and sons, during the Quiet Man Revisited Exhibit ( Sheridan’s My Left Foot at the New York Irish Center in Queens Aug. 12); Thomas Hefferon and T..J. Hundtofte on their short film Switch, and Domhnall Gleeson on his film Noreen, starring his dad Brendan (both were in the Tribeca Film Festival).  And the tune of the week, from Fidil!
