WILD STRAWBERRIES: BLARNEY/ IRELAND’S BORDER LINE

Harry O'Donovan

This film screened 29th December 2010.

Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for the over 55s. Please note there will be no screening on December 31st.

What better way to ring out the old year than with a few good laughs and a trip down Irish cinema’s memory lane with this comedy classic from 1938? It stars Jimmy O’Dea as Billy Branagan, an out-of-work mechanic turned door-to-door salesman, whose selling ground is the border region in post-partition Ireland. Writer and director Harry O’Donovan hilariously sends up the absurdities of a border running through small towns in the adventures that befall Branagan when his suitcase gets mixed up with that of a gang of jewel thieves.

€4 including regular tea/coffee.

Other classics showing throughout December include It’s a Wonderful Life, The Red Shoes and The Shop around the Corner.

68 minutes| Ireland/U.K.| 1938
