Abstract: The much-anticipated Black ’47 has arrived on Irish screens, and it would seem revenge for Skibbereen has been achieved at last. A visually stunning film set in Famine-ravaged Connemara in the titular year, Black ’47 blends the mythic narrative of the Western genre with a nationalist revenge fantasy to satisfying, if not always sophisticated, effect.
