"Goodbye to Glocamorra" (1968) is a documentary film originally made for broadcast on Irish television. It examines the forces of change in the late 1960's in Inwood, then one of the last Irish immigrant communities in New York City.

The film examines the role of the Catholic church in the cultural lives of local Irish immigrants and Irish-Americans. Featured are interviews with churchgoers, a local graduate of Fordham University, and Fr. Jerry Travers of Good Shepherd Parish.

This film was originally produced by Radharc, an Irish television network, for broadcast on Irish television. It was re-presented by the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts in 2012 as part of their "Hidden Ireland" cultural series.

Jerry Travers is now a clinical psychologist. travers_j@hotmail.com
