A charming, funny and poignant film, OLDER THAN IRELAND tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians. Explore each centenarian’s journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life in modern day Ireland as they reflect on such events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, the magic of their wedding day and the loss of their loved ones. Having witnessed a century of immense social, political and technological change each centenarian has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning. In OLDER THAN IRELAND you will meet a colourful cast of characters eager to share their wit and wisdom; from the oldest Irish person ever on record, 113-year-old Kathleen Snavely to Ireland’s oldest man, 108-year-old Luke Dolan. Their extraordinary stories are our living history.
