'Free Charles Byrne' - animated documentary

Postby Charles » Wed Mar 20, 2013 9:30 am

A meeting I had yesterday led me to this video. It went online just 3 days ago on St. Patrick's Day.

It's about a figure from Irish history whose name was Charles Byrne. He was called the Irish Giant. Stood more than 8 feet tall and died at a very young age. Only 22 years old.

His final wish was to have his mortal remains tossed into the sea so that his bones would not be publicly displayed. Alas, that was not the case and now there is a movement in place to grant Mr. Byrne the dignity in death that he requested while in life.

"Free Charles Byrne the Irish Giant" is directed by Fay Heady-Carroll.
