Everyone Ioves the Irish on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), and it’s a good time to remember that there is a lot more to that wee island than green beer, “Danny Boy,” and shillelagh fights. The stories about Ireland on the big screen range from the boisterous beauty of John Ford’s “The Quiet Man” (1952)

to the grim brutalities of Steve McQueen’s “Hunger” (2008). Which films about Ireland or the Irish would be the leaders of your parade? The deadline for entries is Monday, March 10. We’ll be running the top five on Sunday, March 16. [Shown is a trailer for “The Quiet Man”]
