Here we have a beautiful and moving documentary short film about the disappearing traditional weavers of Donegal. Filmed in 1980 it features the work and lives of the three McNelis Brothers from Ardara County, Ireland:
“Imbued by a sense of urgency, the Shaw-Smiths travelled the length and breadth of Ireland during the 1970s and ’80s, capturing on film the final years of traditional rural and urban life. These intimate portraits are as much about the life of the individuals as the crafts they practised. The films capture the essence of Irish heritage, creating a unique archive of life in Ireland at the end of the 20th century.”
It is an important reminder of what we as a people have lost in our relentless pursuit of so-called progress. God commanded us to till the land to keep us close to the earth, to keep our lives honest and devout. The film closes after a hard day’s work at the looms, the McNelis Brothers joining each other in prayer.
“Some day the small weaving sheds will disappear…and be replaced by the large central factory; where microprocessors and computers will organize and supervise the production of stereotype clothes. And the men who operate them, will long for a way of life in which every facet of their personalities can be developed.”
There is only Ireland. No “northern” or whatever. Northern Ireland is UK owned and illegaly occupied land of the people of Ireland. Ireland is a great country and if the UK is in such turmoil I can’t believe Ireland didn’t kick the English out of N. Ireland during all this.
Whatever they weave it won’t be the tweed patterns. This pattern is found in the ‘Caucasian’ mummies of the Tarim Basin in Xi-ang China – the ones the ‘indigenous’ Han and Mongolians are at such pains to erase from the pages of the archeological and historical record. The people of Shem fanned out early from the Plains of Shinar and with them they took their signature twill and tweed and tartan patterns of their fibres. This is as much a White or Shemitic signature as a specific web is to a species of spider or a specific type of nest is to a species of bird.
Yes, the Chinese continue to discover ancient grave sites in China that have tall, red and blond haired White men and women in them. Few want to acknowledge who these people were or where they came from because it opens up a can of worms that certain (((people))) have a vested interest in ignoring.
Interesting I have never heard of these Aryan graves in China.
Thanks for posting the vid RotR
I see the same rugged ‘undeveloped’ landscapes in third world countries, but never the same civility. By American/Jewish standards, these men are living in poverty. Why isn’t this documentary about their life of crime? It seems they had ample opportunity to complain about their miserable lives due to lack of welfare checks, food stamps, or social security. Who the hell makes their own butter anymore? Don’t they have a ‘convenience store’ nearby? And why is this guy making cake, isn’t there a McDonald’s close?
There is nothing more satisfying to the spirit of the white man than the self-sufficiency provided to us by working the land our Father made for us. It is becoming a lost art that will disappear with the white man if current events continue unabated. The Good News is, it is destined not to be so…
Agreed, it’s very misleading to call these traditional Irish people “poor”. Anyone who is as self-sufficient as they were is quite rich indeed. The “poor” today in America are far more “privileged” than these Irish people of old. Today’s poor don’t have to work to survive, which makes them immensely rich comparatively. If any of these Irish people decided they didn’t want to work, they’d starve. It’s that simple. The concept of “poverty” today has become almost meaningless.
Absolutely wonderful – thank you for sharing.
Oh, how much have we lost, and continue to do so?!? Will we ever be able to regain the skills, the society[ies] , the very nature of our folk?
