‘One Two Three O’Leary’ Doc Underway in Cork

A documentary exploring street games in Cork is currently filming in various locations across the county.

Production on the half-hour documentary ‘One Two Three O’Leary’ has been ongoing over the last few months and is expected to wrap in the New Year.

The documentary looks into classic street games which are still around today, and those forgotten by the current population. It features interviews with Cork residents who played street games in their childhood, and features re-enactments by children of the next generation.

The title of the documentary, ‘One Two Three O’Leary’, comes from the popular kids’ game which requires the person playing to bounce a ball while singing each number from the accompanying song ‘One Two Three O’Leary’. Every time the word ‘O’Leary’ is mentioned, the ball is then bounced under the player’s leg.

The game entered popular culture in 1968 when UK comedian and singer Des O’Connor released a single charting his days playing the game.

Frameworks Films developed the documentary, with Emma Bowell producing for the Cork-based production company. Eddie Noonan is the director and the director of photography on the shoot.

The documentary received funding from Round 13 of the BAI’s Broadcasting Funding Scheme last April.

Frameworks is looking after all post-production on the film. It will air on Cork Community Television in the new year.

Frameworks currently has another documentary, ‘Tadhg Barry Remembered’, in post-production, as well as ‘Mother Jones and her Children’, which is in pre-production. Production is scheduled to start on this documentary in the New Year.
