Capturing a year in the life of a rural, lakeside community in Ireland in the 1970’s, That They May Face The Rising Sun is an adaptation of the final novel from John McGahern, one of Ireland’s greatest novelists. Joe and Kate Ruttledge have returned from London to live and work among the small, close-knit community near to where Joe grew up, where the drama of their lives unfolds through the rituals of work, play and the passing seasons.

Writer and academic Deirdre O’Byrne, an expert on the Irish writer John McGahern, will introduce our screening of That They May Face the Rising Sun on Thursday 2 May at 6pm.
