Letters to Ann
Produced by: Lorelei Harris
In 1984, a fifteen year old girl called Ann Lovett gave birth to a full‑term infant in a grotto to the Virgin Mary in the small Irish town of Granard, County Longford. Both she and her child died. The inhabitants of Granard clammed up in the ensuing national furor over the deaths. Nobody knew who the father of the child was, nobody knew that the girl had been pregnant, and nobody was willing to talk. Using letters written both at the time of Ann Lovett's death and from the contemporary perspective, RTE producer Lorelei Harris creates a powerful essay about the teenage girl and the significance of her death in Irish society.
