Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish Film.

We are delighted to present the long-awaited new feature from writer/director Fergus Tighe (Clash of the Ash, 1987, Three Brothers, 1998 and John of God, 2005). Seaside Stories tells the tale of Locky (Fionn de Burca), an 11-year-old boy whose life has begun to deteriorate since his mother took to the drink again with her old boyfriend. When his ‘sister’ Sally arrives home from London, determined to tell Locky that she is really his mother, the scene is set for a series of events that will change the lives of all involved.

This tautly-constructed and authentic drama of life in a small Irish village is the culmination of three years’ work by experienced writer/director Tighe and his Ennistymon neighbours, a talented band of amateur and professional actors.

Director Fergus Tighe will participate in a post-screening Q&A.
