Directed by Sé Merry Doyle, this film documents the burial of Brian O’Doherty’s artistic persona Patrick Ireland on 20 May 2008. Buried in the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in a ceremony attended by over five hundred people, Patrick Ireland had been created over 35 years before as a symbolic gesture of protest at the British military presence in Northern Ireland. This film features contributions from the curators, original signatories such as Robert Ballagh, friends and family, the director of IMMA and the coffin maker, conveying the exciting atmosphere of this most unusual event.
