This article considers Irish cinema in its local, European and global contexts and argues that because Hollywood increasingly speaks with a globalising voice then competing voices, rooted in local cultures, have become more important and necessary. Irish cinema, as a small national cinema, represents one example of the national local speaking to the global with an indigenous address.
