01 Apr 2015 : Seán Brosnan
Nominated for Best TV series with Michelle Beamish and Dara Devaney getting nominated for Actor of the Year
‘An Bronntanas’ has received three nominations for Gradam Chumarsáide an Oireachtais 2015.

‘An Bronntanas’ has been nominated for TV Series of the Year, with two of its central actors, Dara Devaney and Michelle Beamish receiving nominations for Actor of the Year.

Speaking of the nominations, Producer, Ciarán Ó Cofaigh said: ‘We are very proud of how ‘An Bronntanas’ is being received both at home and abroad. Of all the award ceremonies Gradam Cumarsáide an Oireachtais is very important to us, as the Irish speaking community is the first group of people we need to please. Dara and Michelle were very strong in their central roles and we wish them well in the competition.’

Directed by Tom Collins (‘Kings’), and produced by Ciarán Ó Cofaigh of ROSG (‘Cré na Cille’) and Tom Collins, ‘An Bronntanas’ stars Dara Devaney (‘Na Cloigne’), John Finn (‘Cold Case’), Owen McDonnell (‘Single Handed’), Michelle Beamish (‘Crisis Eile’), Pól Ó Gríofa (‘Ros Na Rún’), Charlotte Bradley and Janusz Sheagall. The series was shot in various locations in Conamara, with Cian de Buitléar as the DoP.

‘An Bronntanas’ (The Gift) is a contemporary thriller set against the background of a local independent lifeboat crew working off the coast of Connemara, in the West of Ireland. The rescue crew receives a distress call on a stormy night to discover a fishing boat, its only passenger a dead woman and its cargo is over a million Euros worth of drugs. The crew is challenged with a moral dilemma — bring the woman on shore and hand the drugs to the authorities or, leave the body, sell the drugs and save their struggling village.

‘An Bronntanas’ was produced by ROSG and de facto films with funding from TG4, the BAI, The Irish Film Board, Northern Ireland Screen and Section 481.
