Everybody loved the absolutely charming 'Older than Ireland' last night

The mid-week movie on RTE last night was replaced with something rather special as Alex Fegan's documentary 'Older than Ireland' was shown. It was first released in cinemas almost two years ago to critical acclaim, with The New York Times describing it as 'simply beautiful'.

That it is, and Irish viewers were very taken with it last night, as you can see from the reaction below.

For those that didn't watch, it told the story of a hundred years of life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians. Sometimes funny, often poignant, and filled with fantastic characters, Older than Ireland couldn't help but touch something within all of us.

Oh and Bessie! We heart Bessie.
