Mark O’Connor’s King of The Travellers is now available on DVD.
The film follows John Paul Moorehouse as he falls in love with the daughter of the man he suspects killed his father.
Peter Coonan (Love/Hate), Michael Collins (Man About Dog) also star among a large ensemble of non-actors from the travelling community.
O’Connor said: ‘We made a film which I hope is entertaining for audiences, as well as being of cultural importance to the traveller community. It was a big risk casting traveller non-actors in the film, but I felt it was necessary to give the film real authenticity.’
King of The Travellers is produced by Cormac Fox and John Wallace for Vico Films, and supported by the Irish Film Board, the BAI and TV3.
