11 reasons why The Field is a beloved Irish classic

“Go home Yank”


LAST NIGHT, RTÉ blessed us with a bit of a left field surprise pick for the midweek movie:

The Field.

As it’s a nostalgic classic for Irish people it was welcomed with open arms

It’s just full of killer lines

Which form part of the reason why everyone loved watching it as a kid

Full of things your dad might actually say

The scene where Bull and the lads burst into the pub was seriously intense – and it brought everyone back

“Go home Yank” has entered our national quote bank

And the performances from Richard Harris et al were just class

You can’t be forgetting the sangwiches scene either

The Field has rightly gone down as one of Ireland’s favourites

There’s barely been a more iconic set of characters than these lads

And of course the rich American himself
