    A Man Of No Importance (1994)

    Albert Finney manages to mangle an Irish accent in this depressing picture of 1963 Dublin.

    Has anyone mentioned No Hiding Place, Directed by Paul Rotha in 1951? I was his first assistant, Jack Causey was second.

    James Coburn as IRA man on the run get mixed up in a different revolution,lots of flashbacks and they were filmed at genuine Irish locations including the pub in Dublin where he blasts his best friend with a shotgun for giving in to torture and turning him in. The pub is still there and has changed little, apparently its a mecca for Leone fans.http://youtu.be/DzYddpcyTUw

    I saw The Guard at the cinema recently, made in Ireland, a very funny script and great characters.

    You should check out Kevin Rocket's The Irish Filmography if you haven't already. Published in 1997, its an exhaustive record of 'Irish' films.

    Failing that, try Irish Film & TV Research Online - Trinity College Dublin

The Fu Man Chu films from the 1960's (apparently 1960's Dublin needed very little redressing to look like Edwardian London), The First Great Train Robbery (the train and station scenes), The MacIntosh Man and The List of Adrian Messenger (Huston was living in Ireland at the time). And of course Hear My Song and the new film, 'The Guard'. There was also a film made in the 1970's set in Northern Ireland about an American joining the IRA. I have no idea of the name, but I do remember it being featured on 'Clapperboard'!

    There might be a bit of one of the Doctors films set in Ireland, although knowing their budgets, probably not.

    I just googled Irish film, and came up with the Irish Film Boards website Irish Film Board - Film Directory - Home - their film directory has ones the Board has part financed, and of course there is a Wiki page! List of films set in Ireland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . as well as List of films featuring the Irish Republican Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I think the book 'Worldwide Guide to Movie Locations' and the UK equivelant might have much of the info your looking for. Or you could order 'World Film Locations Dublin' World Film Locations Dublin: Amazon.co.uk: Jez Conolly, Caroline Whelan: Books which released soon (While looking on Amazon for a locations book, I found that there is a book called 'British Horror Film Locations' - damn, another one to go on the 'must buy' list!).

    Looking at the Wiki page, I was really surprised at how many newer films there were (tax breaks!), but also a fair number of films shot there pretending to be elsewhere (The Italian Job). On the other hand, there must be a fair number of 'Irish' films shot on the back lot of Pinewood or Culver City.
    The film on Clapperboard was the Outsider with Craig Wasson and Sterling Hayden.

    I don't know if you'd call it Irish but Zardoz was filming there in the 70's up in the Wicklow hills - I narrowly missed being an extra in it.
    More recently, I noticed a 2009 film called Cracks about a girl school had been filmed in the cloisters and quadrangle of St Columba's College, Dublin, where I was a student in the 60's. Films that require crumbling Georgian piles are often filmed there; Morlang 2001 springs to mind and Rebecca's Daughters 1992. Then there's always Barry Lyndon

    Not Irish? Maybe but then anything filmed there takes on an Irish flavour. I don't have a drop of Irish blood but the five years I spent at school there definitely left a mark (I like to say I'm Irish by contamination).

    Oh yes, and what would you call Quackser Fortune has a cousin in the Bronx? About as Irish as Irish Mist but one of the few records of Dublin in the 70's.
