Bernadette: Notes on a Political Journey Screening on TG4 at 9.30 January 30th

Lelia Doolan’s remarkable documentary on the life and times of Bernadette McAliskey (nee Devlin) was screened on TG4 at 9.30 on Monday January 30th. Bernadette McAliskey, a socialist republican activist,  served as a member of Parliament at Westminster for the Mid Ulster constituency from 1969 to 1974 during the Troubles in Northern Ireland.  At 21 years old she was the youngest MP in Northern Ireland, and remains the youngest woman elected to Parliament. This documentary covers her life and times. Well worth watching. It won the Paddy Hill Award last year at Document 9, the International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in Glasgow, and was  nominated for the John Grierson award at the London Film Festival.
