We had a very exciting and exhausting time in the filming of the first section of Tar Anhaile which will be a documentary on TG4 this coming Autumn. Our (North Kerry Reaching Out) section will tell the story of the search for the background of Bridget Ryan who was one of the first lot of girls who were sent from Listowel Workhouse in 1849 on the Thomas Arbuthnot, to Sydney. Her Great Great Grand daughter Julie Evans came to Ireland to take part in the filming and the final recording will take place in Sydney this coming August. I won’t spoil the mysteries attached to Bridget – all will be revealed in the documentary but here are some of the images from the filming of the event.
