“This is superb pitch-black comedy writing combined with a hugely respected director and the best Irish ensemble cast in recent film history, and will be up there with the dark Irish comedies that audiences around the world have come to love.”

Michael Garland of Grand Pictures produced, Cathal Watters (Viva) is DOP; Stephen O'Connell is editor; Leonie Prendergast is Costume Designer, and Jeffrey Sheriff is Production Designer.
