Synopsis


'A HUNDRED THOUSAND WELCOMES!'


But is the myth of open-hearted Ireland which her sons, daughters and visitors love, gone?


Humour remains, sectarianism declines but racist violence is on the up - ask the new black priest Father Flannagan.


As faith and idealism wane can Catholic Mary, Republican Dominic or Loyalist Derek still believe now, now, NOW?
