Jack Taylor
The latest ‘Jack Taylor’ movies are currently shooting in Galway. It has also been announced that there are three new editions to the cast for the upcoming movies 'The Dramatist' and 'Priest'.

Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Nora Jane Noone (The Runaway, Small Change) and Killian Scott (Love/Hate, Single Handed) will all reprise their roles.

The first of the movies is 'Jack Taylor: The Sorrows' based on the novel 'The Dramatist'. The film catches up with Jack Taylor who, against all odds, is clean and sober. But in his Galway, grief is never far away. While his mother lies dying in a decrepit retirement home, a jailed drug-dealer summons Jack. He doesn’t believe the death of his sweet younger sister was an accident. A second murdered girl is found and Jack receives teasing messages from a Killer obsessed with the Synge play, ‘Deirdre of the Sorrows’.

The second film 'Priest', based on the book of the same name, begins with the discovery of the dead body of an old priest, Father Joyce, who has been beheaded. Taylor finds out that he had abused two boys in the community many years ago and begins digging into the murky past.
