The Silver Branch is an uplifting and emotional celebration of people and place. It captures the delicacy of the natural world; the heart and soul of a Burren farmer-poet, Patrick McCormack and the ancient rural spirit of Ireland which stands behind him.
The Story is centred around Patrick and the land he farms, a place where Mesolithic tombs, famine villages and present day small rocky fields are like jewels telling of our long human story on these hills.
Patrick longs to farm in the quiet place his ascendants did. But his life gains a different momentum when he’s called to Battle in the Supreme courts to decide on the fate of this iconic wilderness.
