Beyond Belief - Feakle and the legend of Biddy Early

"Science and logic have provided us with explanations for many things, but there remains at the core of human beings a love of and a need for mystery, magic and myth. This video explores the nature of belief and traditional storytelling in rural Ireland through the eyes of the inhabitants of Feakle, County Clare, a town still feeling the lingering influence of their famous 'wise-woman', Biddy Early (1798-1874). This video was produced by Patrick Gormley, Fionnuala Holohan, Andy Nally and Sarah Reilly." Posted on Youtube on the 22nd of January 2013 by Fionnuala Holohan.
