Thirty Irish centenarians discuss their 100 years of life

This highly acclaimed feature documentary tells the story of one hundred years of life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians; from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life in modern day Ireland.

Reflecting on such key events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, the magic of their wedding day and the loss of their loved ones, these centenarians have lived through a century of immense social, political and technological change.

Sadly Bessie Nolan, one of the stars of Older Than Ireland, passed away in February.

“Evokes the full range of emotions, from laughter to tears, in an ultimately inspirational film.”

- Film Ireland

“Ireland’s oldest residents fill the screen with warmth and wisdom...”
