The State have repeatedly peddled the line that we cannot interfere with land hoarding or property dereliction because of the Constitutional Right to Property. Well our guests in the tortoise shack, Director Fearghal Ward and Producer Luke McManus have made a film that brilliantly captures the exact opposite of this.
The Lonely Battle Of Thomas Reid tells the story of Bachelor Farmer Thomas Reid and his fight to keep his ancestral family home from the might of the IDA and a Big Multinational Company.
This award winning film is a powerful look of the clash between modernity and tradition, and is recommended viewing.
