    This documentary really blew me away! The movie is so rough and up-close and personal with the life and troubles of an Irish settler family over a decades time. A great and honest insider look at the unregulated boxing matches between settler families who have been feuding for years ever since beatings and a murder took place. I cannot recommend this enough!

    tan crudo como las hostias que se arrean los travelers irlandeses protagonistas de este documental. Un recorrido de diez años que nos lleva desde carnicerías en una cuneta hasta un circo organizado para sacar pasta.

    For a subject of a documentary to succeed, it must be compelling. Does that mean that it's contemporary, or politically relevant, or emotionally trying? It can. Qualifying this criteria pigeonholes us, however, creating bias for and against some topics, and denying them the fair shot of evoking emotion within the viewer. On paper, a documentary spanning ten years of bare-knuckle feuds between Irish traveler (read: gypsy) families is compelling. What the film actually manages to bring to attention is even moreso: even the smallest of civilizations, the most marginal, find reason to fight within themselves.

    Mesmerizing, epic and intelligent. Perfectly edited and paced, which is very impressive considering that it's comprised of over a decade of footage.

    What a brutal, grotesque but intriguing documentary. It's all about a longtime feud between a couple of Irish traveller families and their way dealing with their issues: bare-knuckle boxing. For 12 years director Ian Palmer followed this traditional fights, focussing on the Quinn McDonagh family and their dispute with the Joyces, Nevins and many more. James Quinn McDonagh, legendary fighter of the Quinn McDonagh clan, takes center stage and helps giving an insight into this unique phenomenon of family feud.…

    Decades of feuding leads a handful of families to beat the living hell out of one another. Watch as the man filming comes to grips with his indictment against their local school and police agencies, which at one point has two grandfathers fighting like Bloodsport in the yard.

    A Doc that followed Irish travellers as they lived but more specifically, their feud with another family and how this is maintained and settled, through bouts of bare knuckle boxing, this is a fasinating glimpse into a family, coming off better than you think, and also the bonus of many of these fights filmed and presented here. not scenes of hollywood stuff but natural fighting. the doc is also a glimpse into these lives and how a full out war…

    Not particularly well shot, but amazingly good access. Really introduced a world I had never known, yet, somehow, we all know.

    The narration is a bit annoying at times, and I found it hard to keep track of what time period was being shown, but overall I found this to be a fascinating watch.

    Spanning a twelve year period, the film documents a violent feud between rival Irish clans. Bare knuckle boxing is the choice way to settle their dispute, though it seems like the dispute will never end. Both families are filled with charismatic individuals and the build up to some of the fights couldn't be better. Worth checking out.
