Grá & Eagla is a short documentary examining Irish people’s attitudes towards our native language.
The story follows comedian Áine Gallagher as she prepares material for her bilingual stand-up comedy show, giving her an opportunity to explore why so many Irish people feel passionately about the Irish language but lack the confidence to speak it.
There is a decent amount of Irish language content out there, but I'd never seen a film that explores people's attitudes towards the language, or which questions why so many people are too shy to speak the bit of Irish that they may have, this film makes a start in exploring that topic.
