A documentary about Glasnevin Cemetery called One million Dubliners, has won a prestigious Silver Medal for Documentary at the New York Festivals World’s Awards this year. Held in Las Vegas this year, the awards aim to recognise the best in International TV and Film.

One Million Dubliners was commissioned by RTÉ and reflects one the number of people who rest in peace at the North Dublin graveyard.

Director Aoife Kelleher said of the awards:

“We are honoured that One Million Dubliners has received such a prestigious international accolade and delighted that it will soon be followed by the release of our upcoming feature documentary about Ireland’s miracle town, Knock. We are very grateful to the staff of Glasnevin, without whose support and generosity One Million Dubliners could not have been made, and to the family and friends of the incomparable Shane MacThomáis (late tour guide of Glasnevin)… It’s wonderful that audiences around the world have taken the film into their hearts.”

The documentary made its debut at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2014.
