The Solstice Arts Centre, Navan was the venue for the Premier screening of the film “Living On The Edge” spectacularly directed by Ronan Carley a primary school teacher in Navan.
Ronan’s film is centred upon the life of Navan-man Mark Brady who has a book published about his life in both English and Spanish.
The film was attended by almost 200 who were treated to over two hours of an exciting, colourful and informative information dealing with Mark’s life in Ireland and working with The Tarahumara peoples in Mexico.
He says that telling his life story in book form and now on the screen is a dream come true. More importantly he says that it is his way of saying thanks to The Irish Tarahumara Society, its committee, and everybody who have supported his Tarahumara Crusade for so many years.
He looks forward to their continued support as presently he helps over thirty Tarahumara students secure an education which includes university level.
These Tarahumara students would never get the chance to improve their standard of living were it not for the generosity of Irish supporters and far beyond. They are very grateful to The Irish Society for all the help they have received over so many years.
In his 33 years helping the Tarahumara Mark has never begun a project which he was unable to complete. He plans to return to Mexico in October to continue this important Tarahumara work.
Mark would like to thank Ronan Carley for his time and effort in directing the film; the Solstice Arts Centre for hosting the film; Bishop Smith, Canon Clarke and the Mayor of Navan Colr. Joe Reilly for opening the film show; the M. C. Richard Ball; Colr. Francis Deane; Raymond Egan, Kieran Maguire, Print 4 Now; L.M.F.M.; Meath Chronicle and Meath Echo; The Newgrange Hotel and all who were present at the performance.
The film will be on sale in Navan shortly.
