IFI & ONE CITY ONE BOOK: I WAS HAPPY HERE

DESMOND DAVIS

Book Tickets

The screening will be introduced by artist Fiona O’Dwyer, Ennistymon. 

Cass (Sarah Miles) escapes from an arid marriage in London and returns home to Co. Clare. The rekindling of passion with her old sweetheart is complicated by the arrival of her husband and the disapproval of locals. Lively scenes of the London emigrant experience contrast starkly with life in the faded seaside town in this tale of romance and melancholy.
