    Thought with it coming up to St. Patrick's day, it might be fun to find some old movies that feature Ireland.

    "Guns in the Heather"


    "Flight Of The Doves


    "The Emerald Isle"

    Young Indian Jones


    Mission Impossible went to Ireland on Holidays! But I don't think they ever had an episode based here.

    A movie about Parnell, not well received.

    The Johnstown Monster 1971

    While on holiday in the Irish village of Johnstown, a boy becomes friendly with four other children and learns of the legend of the Johnstown Monster. He then hits on the idea of making a fake monster that will attract tourists and bring prosperity to the village. The children come up with a fake that fools everyone for a short time.
