Screening of documentary, "The Men of Ventry"


On Monday, October 15th at 7:00pm the Irish Cultural Center at ElmsCollege will be hosting Irish filmmaker and author, Brenda O’Sullivan who will present her most recent documentary, “The Men of Ventry” in the Veritas auditorium at ElmsCollege. The documentary is about the men of the west Kerry parish of Dingle peninsula called Ventry. One man relates how, after enduring the tough education of the Christian Brothers, took matters into his own hand and decked a nasty brother. Emigration and life in London in the 1950s and 1960s is recalled and football is remembered with pride.
 In conjunction with her presentation, the cultural center is hoping to display a photographic exhibit of men from the parish of Ventry, Dingle, Co Kerry, Ireland who immigrated to the greater Springfield/Hartford area. If your father, grandfather, uncle, brother, or male family member emigrated from Ventry, please submit a picture of him to the Irish Cultural Center via email at Irishcenter@elms.edu or mail a picture to The Irish Cultural Center, ElmsCollege, 291 Springfield St, Chicopee Ma 01013. Please include the man’s name and the village in Ventry that he was from if you know it. If you are unable to email a picture or send a copy but would like to submit a photo please contact Mary Ellen Russell O’Brien at 413 896 4604.
The event is free and open to the public but donations will be accepted.
