Ireland and the making of Canada The French connection ; Grosse Ile, gateway and graveyard ; Orange and green ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Four documentaries on the Irish presence in Canada. 1) Ireland and the making of Canada. The ones who wrote the basic laws and constitution at the time of the establishment of Canada are generally taken to be the English and the French. But among the group called English, the largest group were in fact Irish. 2) The French connection. Some Irish immigrants to Canada in the last century, moved straight from speaking Irish to speaking French and have never spoken English. Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney is one of the more famous descendants of this Quebec emigration. 3) Grosse Ile, gateway and graveyard. The little island in the St. Lawrence river near Quebec, Canada, where Irish ships, full of emigrants fleeing the famine were held in quarantine. An estimated 11,000 Irish are buried on the island. 4) Orange and green. The Scots and Northern Irish imported the Orange Order into Canada a little over a century ago. Because people of Protestant religion were more acceptable to the government, supporters of the Order tended to get positions of authority particularly in Ontario. In recent times tensions have been put aside. Now Orange and Green join in celebrating both the 12th July and St. Patrick's day

Convent walls are falling down ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A compilation of a two-part Radharc report. In 1971 enormous changes were taking place in women's religious orders, not least in the way that nuns wanted to be perceived. The changes did not come without reluctance and some opposition from church authorities. This film features the Presentation Sisters and the Sisters of Mercy and was filmed inside the convent walls." -- Radharc Films Website
