“Irish blood is one of the most coveted resources in our country,” says the director of the new movie Tales of Irishblood.
“Cannibals are very rich, very powerful.
It’s very much a story of greed, a story about a family that can take what they want from you.”
Director Simon McGlynn has spent the last three years making Tales of Irelandblood, a film about the feuding clans of the Irish Republic, a gripping drama that will be released in the US this month.
The film is based on the book by Michael F. O’Brien, the former journalist who uncovered the notorious ‘Tale of the Cannibal Corpse’.
McGlynn, who is based in Dublin, made the film in the past few years, but he’s now taking a break to devote himself to Tales of the Corpse.
“I’m in the middle of the film,” McGlynn told the Irish Independent.
“I’m really not sure how long I’ll be here, I don’t know how long the project will take.
I’m really just looking forward to seeing it.”
My favourite thing about Irish blood is that I feel I’ve got a lot of the DNA of that particular clan in my head, I feel that Irish blood has always been there, I just didn’t know where to start.
“McGlyn said the film will focus on the feud between the Clan Airtons and Clan Birtons, a group of Irish clans who were formed around the time the English colonised Ireland.”
“It was the blood that had made their clan so powerful. “
They were the people who were the first to wipe out their own people.””

McGregor is currently working on a movie about the ‘Tallaght Massacre’, an event in the 17th century when thousands of Irish were executed in the name of a Christian king, the son of King Patrick.
The story of the Tallaght massacre was first told in the book The Curse of Tallaghett, which has been translated into more than 30 languages.
“That’s really interesting because that’s the story of what happened in the Tallags,” McGyn said.
“It’s a story where we really get to know the Tallaghs.”
There’s a whole set of people in the movie, not just one person, there’s a lot more people.
“We learn more about them, we see how they reacted to the English.
We learn about the fact that the English didn’t want them to rule Ireland and they hated them.”
This is the story behind the Tallagan massacre and it’s really about the Irish, the English and their attitudes towards Irish people and how they treated them.
“Tales Of Irish Blood will be available in US cinemas in November.
