Ballykissangel on Crystal Meth. If you’re going get involved with men in a small Irish town, they might as well be the Mannions - and Sara is involved up to her neck.

Written by Irish author Kevin Barry and based around characters he created for his own short story collection, Ian Fitzgibbon’s pitch-black comedy centres on a small Irish town over a week-long period. The Mannions are a feuding family in the town of Dromord who are all set at each other. Sara is married to Daddy Mannion but holding a candle for her first love, his son Doggy. When she also gets involved with his brother, trouble looms.

An impressive Irish cast including Peter Coonan, Charlie Murphy, Pat Shortt and Moe Dunford flesh out this unique, dark, comedy which offers on-thenose observations about Irish life.

Director Ian Fitzgibbon will take part in a Q&A following the film.
