Maureen O’Hara Film Festival 2010

In June 2010 Maureen O'Harainternational fans and film buffs from all over the world descended on Maureen O’Hara’s beautiful home village of Glengarriff, where she currently resides, for a week long film festival featuring some of her all time movie classics. The 2nd annual festival was a resounding success which Maureen attended on both the opening and closing nights and on other occasions during the festival and proved once again to be the star attraction for the many people attending the event. Amongst the movies screened wereBig Jake, McLintock, Rio Grande, Against All Flags, The Spanish Main, The Black Swan, The Parent Trap, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, How Green Was My Valley, Ten Gentlemen From Westpoint, The Foxes of Harrow, The Spainish Main, Wings of Eagles,   The Long Grey Line,  Against All Flags and Spencers Mountain.

The centrepiece of the schedule was without doubt  The Quiet Man which attracted a large and enthusiastic crowd with whom Maureen had a lively discussion relating to both the movie and her life and times in general.  This event was filmed by a documentary film crew attending the event and footage taken will feature in a documentary to be released later in 2010 called Imagining The Quiet Man

  4. Due to circumstances outside the control of the Maureen O’Hara Foundation, a decision has been made by the board to cancel the Maureen O’Hara Classic Film Festival for 2012. Thank you for all of your kind help and assistance. We hope to be in a position to reorganise again next year when all external issues have been resolved.
