‘Joe Comerford made a movie there called Down the Corner, years and years ago, and that was like, bizarre, you know. We never fully comprehended what that was – someone making a film in Ballyfermot about some guys robbing orchard. It’s like dreams and ambitions, you know, you tend to divert what want to do and a lot of guys done that.’ – Jimmy Smallhorne, director ‘2by4’, speaking about growing up in Ballyfermot at the time.
