The Island of the Saints
Wexford Town, Co. Wexford
12 February 2022
The Island of Saints is based on an important 14th century medieval manuscript, The Red Book of Ossory, which was compiled in Kilkenny and is housed there in St Canice's Cathedral.

The Island of Saints is a film recounting the story of de Ledrede’s manic pursuit and persecution of Dame Alice Kyteler and her servant Petronilla de Meath. The film is shot in the beautiful 13th century Swords Castle (the best surviving example of an Archbishop's Palace in Ireland) and the woodlands in Malahide castle demesne. The story is told through music, with performers in historically appropriate costume dramatising the tale.

Caitríona O’Leary, music director of Anakronos, has set de Ledrede’s esoteric and imagistic poetry to music from a multitude of medieval sources.
