An Ulster Gaelic Bible Film

This event tracks the journey taken by a well-known working-class unionist, Brian Ervine, whose Christian beliefs led him to take an interest in a Bible in the Ulster dialect of the Irish language. We join him in his journey to Donegal to discover the source of the Bible. He learns he has more in common with the locals than he had envisaged. For example, a keen Somme historian, Brian discovers that many Donegal men fought and died for the British in WWI. The programme is an eye-opener for unionists who perceive Donegal to be alien to them and who would not include the county in self-conceptions of ‘Ulster’.
