To the Earth


To the Earth uncovers the events of the 20th December 1940, when a German bomb dropped in the dead of night on a quiet rural community near Carrickmacross. 78 years later; local historians and the descendants of eyewitnesses recount the tale, and reveal their fathers Blacksmiths Callipers forged from fragments of the bomb.

This film was part of the “Life on the Border with a World at War” exhibition in Monaghan County Museum; which was distinguished with the Heritage & Built Environment Award.
