Bio

 

For the last ten years, Maurice has been regarded as one of Ireland’s leading documentary filmmakers. Having worked on diverse films from drama documentaries Cromwell In Ireland to creative portraits of Irish writer Flann O Brien and crime writer John Connolly, Maurice has just finished his first major drama feature, Saving The Titanic, to wide critical acclaim. The film has been sold throughout the world, including America, Canada and Britain with Channel 4.

 

In 2010, Maurice filmed and directed the widely acclaimed The Forgotten Irish, dealing with the emigration to Britain in the 1950′s. Always returning to his love of sport, Maurice has made lasting portraits of his heroes Michael O Muircheartaigh and Vincent O Brien. Recently he has just finished a follow up to Forgotten Irish with Ireland’s Forgotten Voices.
