Alive Alive O – A Requiem for Dublin

‘Alive Alive O’, directed by Sé Merry Doyle, chronicles the heroes and the ever-changing heart of Dublin over a seven-year period.

This invaluable record of vanished communities also depicts a city fighting to retain its soul in the midst of boom-time redevelopment.

A young U2 play a benefit concert on Sheriff Street and the maverick politician Tony Gregory fights the closure of Moore Street market and Dubliners.
