THE second instalment of a three-documentary on Frank McCourt and the legacy of his book, Angela's Ashes, produced by ilovelimerick.com in association with the Limerick Leader, has gone online.

The latest part of the documentary series, A Tribute to Frank McCourt, can be viewed by clicking here.

"Working on this documentary has been the most incredible experience. My dad, Eric, grew up with Frank McCourt and we knew him all our lives, so this was something very close to my heart," said Richard Lynch of www.ilovelimerick.com.

McCourt last visited Limerick in August 2008 to take part in the tour for the first time. The Angela's Ashes tour has been running for over a decade – beginning two years after the memoir was published in 1996.

The documentary series took nearly a year to produce.

The third part of the series will be released this Sunday, December 19.

They feature interviews with his brothers, Alphie, Malachy and Michael, and his widow, Ellen, following the unveiling of the Frank McCourt bust at Leamy’s this May.
