Editor's Viewpoint: Her star shines on

A true Hollywood star celebrates her 90th birthday today. Maureen O'Hara made her name when the industry was in its golden heyday, and she ranked among the best, with her flame-red hair making her distinctive at a time when the screen was packed with stars.

She will forever be remembered for her role in The Quiet Man, but she intends to create a different legacy by opening a creative arts centre in the Republic, which may help other young Irish hopefuls become stars of the silver screen.
