  2. This sell-out play written in two Acts, and directed by Liam Alex Heffron, was first performed in An Taibhdhearc theatre, Galway City in 2006 and based on the stage play and film; 'Twelve Angry Men'. Liam was inspired to write 'The Tinker's Blade' by the infamous 'Nally-Frog Ward' murder trial, where a west of Ireland farmer was convicted by a jury of the manslaughter of a traveller, in controversial circumstances.
    The play is set in real time, in the jury room of a Galway city court, after the closing arguments have been made, in the trial of a young 18 year old Traveller accused of the violent murder of his father.

    *Unfortunately this is the only video recording of the play, (from the closing night), and the end of Act 1 / beginning of Act 2 was not recorded (at the 1:01:00 mark) - so the video 'jumps ahead' at this point, by a couple of minutes.

    The play features some of the best known actors in the Galway circuit of the early 2000's including the late Jim Stiven.

  3. Set in rural Ireland in the 1980s, it tells the story of a gay man whose deepest secret begins to be revealed at the weekend of a family stations Mass. The story revolves around three unsettling days for Pat Conneely, a young troubled man living on a rural farm in the West of Ireland. The series of events kick off with the arrival of a long-lost uncle (Frank Conneely) from England for a "station" (mass in the home house). Amidst all the excitement and celebrations for the new guest Pat's secret begins to unravel in the hands of a meddling neighbour. It is a tale of family, secrets, and the loneliness of rural isolation.

    The film features a strong cast including Emmet O'Malley, Joe Greaney, Frank Campbell, Liam Alex Heffron and Eimir Creedon. The film was written and directed by Emmet O'Malley, and was shot by Katie Looney. Local musician David Lyons provides the score for the movie.

    Although shot on a shoe-string budget, the film utilises the brilliant efforts of a young, talented local crew, who achieved great results while the production was assisted by the Galway Film Centre's “Special Projects Scheme.”

    Released in 2009.

  4. Trailer I cut with Terry in the bowels of a studio where I worked (partly for which I was asked to 'leave' after!). Terry can madden, anger, inspire and move me to laugh out loud - often in the same conversation, and there is no denying his passion or genius. Charlie Casanova has generated a steam of love/hate reviews but its acidly accurate commentary on the worst excesses of Irish society during the 'Celtic Tiger' boom years is undeniable. I'm just proud to have contributed in my own small, flawed way.

    "What did you do during the war Daddy? "

    What's YOUR answer?
