    Hello to the Community of Loch con Aortha from the Toronto Irish Film Festival! We were so honoured to have been able to share your story thru Seán Ó Cualáin's film In the Shadow of the Glen this past weekend (March 1-3 2019). We were all moved by your efforts to keep the heritage of Loch con Aortha alive and to honour your ancestors. We wish you luck as the project continues - congratulations on such an inspiring mission!

    My grandmother was from Carna, and I appreciate the historical information you provided on your website.

    Spent a very happy month at Irish College in your lovely townland in the early 1970s. Will be back in the area during this summer and am looking forward to reviving old memories. I take my hat off to your efforts to halt the decline of your village. It's something we can't imagine as Dubs who are far removed from your reality

    Maith sibh! Beautiful documentary. Will have to visit your beautiful village. As an O'Sullivan I was wondering why there seemed to be so many on my namesakes in the village? An unusual name for Connemara. Anything to do with O'Sullivan Beare's retreat after the Battle of Kinsale ?

    I watched the documentary on TG4 and once again was dismayed by the loss of such precious, rich cultural communities, the passing of their ways, their skills and their struggles. This is the land of our forefathers and our history, it is up to us to cherish this gift and pass it's wealth on. To see communities like those in Loch Con Aortha respecting and recording this history in such a way is invaluable. Very very well done. I am up there in a week or two and will walk through the area with a greater education and wealth of knowledge... thank you.
