Clones Film Festival have confirmed The Irish Pub and The Note will screen at this year’s festival, which runs Thursday 24 October to Sunday 27 October in various locations around the town, including the Courthouse, the old Post Office on the Diamond (now Clones Art Studios) and the Cinemobile.
The Irish Pub will be screened in the Cinemobile on Saturday 26 October at 8pm. It will be preceded by new Irish short The Note, starring Aidan Gillen and Clones’ own Ruth McCabe.
The Note,written and directed by Ciaran Creagh, tells a story about redemption, centering around Lars a middle-aged alcoholic, who through his addiction has lost everything, most importantly his wife and son. Now he carries around The Note, a constant reminder of his childhood in which he was subjected to sexual abuse at the hands of a Christian Brother.
Ciaran Creagh will attend the screening at CFF.
The Irish Pub, directed by Alex Fegan visits every corner of Ireland to find some of the more famous public houses, as well as some of the more well regarded hidden gems, The Irish Pub is a love letter to a cornerstone of Irish personality, and one of our nation’s most loved past-times.
