Irish documentary ‘One Million Dubliners’ wins top British Award
03 Jun 2015 : Seán Brosnan
‘One Million Dubliners’ is directed by Aoife Kelleher and produced by Rachel Lysaght
Irish documentary ‘One Million Dubliners’ has won the Television Award at the 2015 Sandford St Martin Religious Broadcasting Awards Ceremony.

The Sandford St Martin Trust promotes thought-provoking, distinctive programming that deals with religion, ethics and spirituality. Through its annual awards, the Trust promotes excellent broadcasting about all faiths, from major networks, independents and online sources, at local and national level. The awards show is recognized as the UK's most prestigious for religious broadcasting.

The win caps off a very good month for the RTÉ documentary as it was nominated for the Best Feature Documentary IFTA at the recent IFTA Film & Drama Awards, where Emer Reynolds picked up a Best Editing IFTA for her work on the film.

The documentary is directed by Aoife Kelleher, written by James Mitchell and produced by Rachel Lysaght and Underground Films. It explores the life and death stories around Glasnevin Cemetery, where 1.5million people lie buried. It also offers a poignant portrait of Shane MacThomais, the cemetery tour guide and historian who was a well-known figure in Glasnevin.

The film has previously won awards at the 2014 Galway Film Fleadh and the Boston Irish Film Festival as well as being voted as the "best Irish film of 2014" by reviewers of The Irish Times. It also was released to Irish cinemas last year before airing on RTÉ One.
