“Fisín has a very special place in my heart as it is without a doubt the reason I have a career as a script writer. It was Fisín that funded An Mhallacht and also got the ball rolling on my first short Rúbaí. Fisín is a great competition for Irish language writers who aren’t established with production companies and it’s a great breeding ground for new and exciting talent. ” Antoin Ó Colla
