'Damo & Ivor: The Movie' Set For Irish Release This Friday – March 16th
14 Mar 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Having made its world premiere at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival earlier this month, Wildcard Distribution is preparing for the nationwide release of Andy Quirke’s debut film, this Friday – March 16th.

The film directed by Ronan and Rob Burke follows on from the last TV series and sees Damo and Ivor embark on the mother of all adventures across Ireland to find the last piece of their family puzzle, their long-lost brother John Joe.

Damo & Ivor are well-known characters from the massively popular satirical comedy about the lives of two identical twin brothers separated not long after birth.  One of the boys, Damo, is left to grow up on the mean streets of Dublin to be raised by his maternal Grandmother, Grano, while the other, Ivor, is given a life of wealth and luxury in Dublin’s affluent Foxrock by parents who shower their son with money and little else.

Andy Quirke, Damo & Ivor The Movie's writer/creator/lead actor, reprises his roles as Damo, Ivor and John Joe and is joined by some of the much-loved cast of the TV series including Ruth McCabe (Grano) along with other well-known Irish faces Simon Delaney and Tina Kellegher. 

Damo and Ivor have a huge online following and have achieved over 8 million views on YouTube, two hit TV series on RTE Two, four top 10 singles including ‘Everybody’s Drinkin’’ and ‘Big Box Little Box’ and a top 10 album as well.

‘Damo & Ivor The Movie’ goes on general release in Irish cinemas on March 16th.
