Film maker Fiona Murphy touches on a deeply personal subject tonight as she explains how the washed up colonial class of practical joking, horse riding, literary Anglo Irish saw themselves after Ireland’s independence. The Murphys were neither pure bred toffs nor fully Irish, but have sharp perceptions, a relish for the absurd and wounds that still show. A father in colonial Sri Lanka, a home in the West of Ireland, school in England: were they Irish? English? Children of the Empire? Each has a different answer.
