Give Up Yer Aul Sins

Wednesday, 17th March being Saint Patrick’s Day it seemed appropriate to bring you this charming account of the story of Saint Patrick. Created by Dublin based Brown Bag films, Give Up Yer Aul Sins is a series based on the original recordings taken by Peig Cunningham in Dublin schoolrooms from the 1960′s, (subsequently re-discovered and released by EMI record) The film received an Oscar nomination in 2001 and is narrated by a non-stop account of the patron Saint, told by a young Irish girl that gives it a delightful, if a little twee, charm. …And Breathe. Beannacht Lá Fhéile Pádraig!

Brown Bag Films also received an Oscar nomination for their latest film Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty
