Land Without God


Mannix Flynn (b. 1957) is an Irish writer, playwright and former politician who was institutionalised as a child.

In 2019, Flynn released a documentary - Land Without God - in which he meets with generations of his family who have had their own harrowing experiences in both religious and state run institutions.

As Tara Brady of the Irish Times comments in her review of Land Without God (18 October 2019), "the family's low socio-economic status was a huge factor in their victimisation by church and state".
