Aughty – trailer for a film by Tom Flanagan and Megs Morley

“Set against the stark and beautiful landscape of the Sliabh Aughty mountains in the west of Ireland , 'Aughty' is a documentary portrait of a unique place and people untouched by the boom and bust motions of the Irish 'Celtic Tiger', capturing a moment in time through the ordinary lives and traditions of Irish people in community, culture and resistance. In a landscape and population that is changing rapidly, 'Aughty' leads us on a poetic journey into rural Ireland through the relationships of people and place.“ This trailer posted on Youtube on the 19th of April 2013 by Tom Flanagan.

Megs Morley and Tom Flanagan, the creators of this project, “are currently running an online crowd-funding campaign on '' to produce a beautiful book of photography and DVD of the feature documentary 'Aughty'...” With only a few days to go to the funding deadline they have not yet reached their target for the publication, and are seeking support.
