As part of the Ballymahon St Patrick’s weekend celebrations, we have the Oscar long-listed Irish-Language film Arracht.

The film tells the story of Colmán Sharkey, a fisherman living in Connemara, who visits his landlord to plead for clemency for his starving community. The film is directed by Tom Sullivan and is a must-see.

This is the first screening in the 2022 programme of the Still Voices Film Society and we are looking forward to welcoming audiences back in person for the first time in two years.

The screening will take place on March 18th at 8pm in Ballymahon Library admission is €5 - pay at the door.
