The stunning documentary film from Dr. Enda Murray explores Irish Troubadour Áine Tyrrell’s journey as she plays Woodford Festival just north of Brisbane with her band over New Years 2019/2020. It combines two storylines: Tyrell’s journey to the festival and performing there, and a personal story of escaping domestic violence. Irish Troubadour is directed and produced by Enda Murray.

In coming to Australia, Áine was attempting to save a relationship with a violent partner. After much heart-searching Áine has decided to talk publicly about the experience where her Australian dream became a nightmare. When she was at her lowest ebb, Áine bought a 1966 Bedford bus and took her 3 young children on the road. Áine’s goal is to be a working artiste and a mother to her children. She is passionate about passing on her Irish language and culture to her family and equally passionate to respect and absorb the Aboriginal heritage of her adopted land.

Áine says this is a dream come true for her.

‘Five years ago, when Enda asked to start filming me for a documentary about my life, I couldn’t have imagined it’d be premiering in my city of birth at the Galway Film Fleadh. It breaks my heart to not be able to get home to be there, but to be honest, I’d probably be a bit of an emotional mess if I did, because I am already here blubbering at all the lovely messages people are sending me about it,’ says Aine.

‘I don’t talk much about our past and being survivors of domestic violence because I’ve been so busy building me and my kids a brighter future. Sometimes I forget how far we have come and this movie documenting all that time is humbling’.

The documentary includes Q+A with Áine Tyrrell and director Dr. Enda Murraym be sure to check out Áines exclusive interview in the Irish Examiner here.
