Irenee was the little girl in the famous photograph holding her grandmother’s hand as the two began the land march from Te Hapua to Wellington in 1975. She and other family members, as well as some of the movie production team, visited the Stone Store before a movie screening in Kerikeri which was raising money for the Bald Angels charity.
