The Maine Irish Heritage Center will be commemorating the 15th Anniversary of the Northern Irish Peace Agreement by showing for the first time in the United States, the acclaimed BBC documentary
"George Mitchell: My Journey's End".

In 2012 Maine's Senator George Mitchell, architect of the Good Friday Agreement, returned to Northern Ireland with his 14-year-old son Andrew to visit some of the 61 families whose children share Andrew's birthday. In this deeply personal film, presented exclusively by the Maine Irish Heritage Center, the Irish families talk about the effects of the Agreement, and the Senator reflects on his hopes for "the children of peace." Former President Bill Clinton adds his perspective on the significance of Senator Mitchell's work.

The documentary will be screened on Friday, April 12 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, April 14 at 2 p.m. at the Maine Irish Heritage Center,
Corner of State and Gray Streets in Portland, Maine. A $5 donation is requested.
