My family watches The Quiet Man almost every St. Patty’s Day. It might fall under “Oirish” since it was written and directed by Americans, but John Ford was a proud Irish-American and this was a passion project for him that took significant effort and convincing to get off the ground. The fact that it was shot (beautifully) on site and included so many Irish actors makes it “Irish” in my opinion.
