...I take my hat off to Roddy Flynn and Pat Brereton of DCU for coming up with a new database of facts about Irish film....This is a quirky publication that will assuredly find itself nestling in the stocking of fact-hunters and hibernophiles this Christmas... (Film Ireland)
This reference is much more than just a dictionary....a valuable resource....The book is well laid out and it presents the information in a clear and concise way. (Reference Reviews, November 2008)
Flynn and Brereton (both communications, Dublin City U.) provide all the essential information about Ireland's rather impressive output, considering, while maintaining the commitment to quality in articles about directors, actors, films, themes, history, the place of cinema in Irish culture, considerations of politics and society and the promises of the future.
