Celtic Attic Speaks Out
We have been flooded with eMails asking what music
we listen to in the office, what movies we watch & what books we
read. We have been asked the best places to stay in Ireland,
Scotland & Wales and what are the cool spots to visit. We will
try to keep this section updated as we travel. We will include hot
spots of Celtic influence in the U.S.A as well. We hope you
enjoy. If you have something to add to these pages, don't hesitate

- Music Opinions: The
Corrs (Breathless), Flogging
- Movie Opinions:
Collins - This movie is beyond compare. Liam
Neeson is amazing in this movie. A must see!
A story about the Revolutionary figure in Irish History.
- Bloody Sunday - This Film is
slow to start, but pay attention to every detail. It shows how
both the British Forces and the Irish Rebels were at fault for the
days events. It made me angry as proponent for a united Ireland
and it made me cry. It also made me feel very sorry for the
British Soldiers who lied about the days events, they had to live with
the horror. The film tells the story of Bloody Sunday - January
30, 1972 - as it unfolded over one day, chronicling the arrival of
thousands of British troops in the tense and crowded streets of Derry
in Northern Ireland and the simultaneous preparations by civil rights
leaders for a nonviolent but forceful march that was to make the case
for Irish self-determination. It focuses in particular on two stories,
that of march organizer Ivan Cooper, a Protestant in the Catholic
sector with a fervently-held belief in the need for peaceful change,
and Gerry Donahue, a Catholic rebel with a Protestant girlfriend who
might be settling down but is drawn into the struggle. The day
tragically ended with British troops killing thirteen unarmed
civilians, and it changed the course of history.
