Details: Michael Collins, the man and the movie, stands tall. The man is a hero whose fighting tactics became a model for other 20th-century struggles, a statesman who negotiated Ireland’s break with England, a political martyr slain for the great cause he lived and breathed. The movie is an epic triumph “as brave and heartfelt as Braveheart” (lack Mathews, Newsday) “I will never make a more important film,” Academy Award winner" Neil Jordan (The Crying Game) says. Only time will tell if he makes a more exciting one. Michael Collins roils with the passions of war furiously waged and peace desperately sought. Liam Neeson (winner of a Venice Film Festival Best Actor Award) plays the title role. Aidan Quinn, Stephen Rea, Alan Rickman and Julia Roberts also deliver vivid performances. They, Jordan and a superb behind-the-cameras team make Michael Collins a man and a movie you won’t soon forget.

Ogham is the earliest written form of Primitive Irish, the oldest of the Gaelic languages. Ogham was first used in Ireland and parts of England, Scotland and Wales between the 2nd and 6th centuries. Though its actual origins remain a mystery today, it is believed the Celts desired a cryptic alphabet that could not be deciphered by Roman Britain.
Represented as a series of perpendicular and intersecting lines, this ancient script is thought to be influenced by the Latin alphabet using 20 characters. It is most commonly written vertically and is read from bottom to top. When presented horizontally, it is read from left to right.
