Bridie Gallagher Girl from Donegal Doc in Development
13 Apr 2011 :
Bridie Gallagher
Picture This Productions are currently in development with a documentary for UTV entitled ‘No-One Quite like Grandma’. The 30 minute doc, directed by Una Murphy will examine the life of Donegal singer, Bridie Gallagher through footage of her tour of America.

Bridie Gallagher, known professionally as The Girl from Donegal shot to fame in 1956 with her recording of ‘A Mother’s Love’s a Blessing’. During her six decade career, she toured America, Canada, Europe and Australia playing in Carnagie Hall and the Sydney Opera House. She holds the record for the largest number of people in attendance in the Albert Hall London.

Produced by Anna Marie McFaul and executive produced by UTV Managing Director, Michael Wilson. ‘No-One Quite like Grandma’ will see Bridie’s granddaughter, Teresa examining her grandmother’s career and will feature previously unseen footage of Bridie’s world tour as captured by her husband on his video camera in 1959.

The doc is to go in to pre-production in early May of this year and is set to shoot in June. It is expected that the half hour project will be edited in Belfast’s Imagine Media and will broadcast in the Autumn on UTV. Further crew and budget information for the project will be reported in the coming weeks but thus far the doc has received £45,000 from the BAI’s Sound and Vision programme.
