Radharc: Inisheer

The 1971 Radharc documentary about life on Inis Oírr.

“Adults, who have never attended secondary school, feel they have nothing to offer the young. This is not true. You have a knowledge that no school can provide – the education of life’s experiences here on the island. That is the real  education – education that comes from the heart. You give that education through being with them and through the normal chores of the day. This education of experience is passed on unknown – just as important as schooling. I believe, it is important that those attending secondary school be treated as if always at home. They need to know that the family given experience is better than any other.”
