James Curran of Curran’s pub, Dingle, opens the door to his pub. “We’ll start another day,” he chuckles. He points at a snug; “These were used for matchmaking,” he informs us.
THE IRISH PUB is a eulogy to the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub or more specifically the traditional Irish publican’s who run them. The characters in this exceptionally endearing film all run and own pubs that have been in their families for generations and it is through their warmth, wit and wisdom that we gain an insight into the heart and soul of THE IRISH PUB.
We just couldn’t let this one go by with out it being part of the festival. Already well screened in Dingle during 2013, its back! The film will be introduced by its director Alex Fegan and followed with a get together in Curran’s Pub up the road from the church.
