"THE WAKING OF NED DEVINE" - Irish – no subtitles! You may not immediately spot the leprechauns, wizards and other tell-tale signs but as you watch “Waking Ned Devine”, you will soon realise that what you are seeing is an Irish fairy tale, simple and pure. Firstly, there is the pot of gold, disguised as a winning lottery ticket held by some lucky neighbour in the tiny village of Tulaigh Morh. Next, there are the two old men scheming for a piece of the action are the thinly disguised and mischievous leprechauns. There is a hog keeper (James Nesbitt) waiting for the kiss of a fair maid to reveal him for the prince that he is and an old hag so black hearted and malevolent that all know her as a witch. And when Ned Devine, the neighbour with the winning ticket, dies from the shock of it, his ghost appears to one of the “leprechauns” in a dream, sets in motion a plan that has the whole village working to outwit the vigilance of the lottery board and the malevolence of the “witch”, so all can claim a piece of the fortune at rainbow's end.
