Older Than Ireland



Older Than Ireland


Wednesday 27 November 8.30pm Channel 039

Directed by Alex Fegan, Older Than Ireland is a landmark documentary that tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians. The film explores each centenarian’s journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life as a centenarian in modern day Ireland.  Reflecting on key events, these centenarians have lived through it all. Having witnessed a century of immense social, political, and technological change, each has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning. From the oldest Irish person ever on record, 113-year-old Kathleen Snavely, to Ireland's oldest man, 108-year-old Luke Dolan, we meet a colourful cast of characters, from all walks of life - from the four corners of Ireland. These centenarians are our living history and these are their extraordinary stories.
