I am always looking for new Irish films and TV shows. I am addicted to Amazon, anyone who knows me can tell you this. I may be one of their best customers because I am constantly ordering something, something I probably do not need but I just cannot help myself. Having the Prime movies and TV shows is an added benefit to my subscription. These 10 Irish films available now on Amazon Prime for free if you have a subscription. I have not seen all of these and some of the ones I did see I have mixed feelings about while others I really loved. I am curious to know your opinion and if there are any you have seen recently that were really good. I will start with my absolute favorite Irish film – Waking Ned Devine!
