Before I was humiliated I was like a stone that lies in deep mud, and he who is mighty came and in his compassion raised me up and exalted me very high and placed me on the top of the wall.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
Give Up Yer Aul Sins is based on the Academy Award nominated short film by Brown Bag Films. The episodes humorously reenact original recordings of Dublin schoolrooms in the 1960s made by Peig Cunningham and subsequently rediscovered and released by EMI. In each episode, a documentary crew arrives to film the activities of the classroom. The teacher chooses children to retell, in their own imaginative way.
