'True Gaelic' Premiere

Thursday, 28 September, 2017

Saint Louis University will host the premiere of a documentary starring a SLU professor and students as they delve into the past and discover secrets hidden in the Irish soil.

In True Gaelic: Unearthing Medieval Ireland, HEC-TV cameras and crew follow Thomas Finan, Ph.D., and his students on a first-ever excavation on the shores of Lough Ce in County Roscommon, Ireland.

The documentary premieres at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m., Sept. 28, at the Center for Global Citizenship. The entire SLU community is invited for an evening of Irish dancing, music and the film’s debut screening.

Refreshments will be available free of charge. Free parking will be available in the Laclede Garage.
