Filming has wrapped on the set of Dathaí Keane’s new feature ‘Finky.

The production, which is being produced by Eileen Seoighe and Pierce Boyce for Abú Media Film Productions, has been shooting in Galway and Glasgow for the past five weeks.

The film, currently in post-production at Abú Media, is set for delivery in 2019. Co-written by Keane and Diarmuid de Faoite, it tells the story of Micí Phincí Ó Foghlú, a young musician with a tragic past who is crippled in a car accident and given a chance at redemption when he is recruited by a violent, avant-garde circus. IFTA Winner Dara Devaney (‘An Klondike’) stars in the title role and other cast members include Ned Dennehy, Eoin Geoghegan, Fionnuala Gygax, Dolina MacLennan, Diarmuid de Faoite, and Caitríona Ní Threasaigh.

Speaking about the experience, actor Dara Devaney told IFTN:

It was a great privilege to play 'Finky', a great part in a fantastic story. Also honoured to work with Daithí Keane and Cathal Watters again. Really looking forward to seeing how this one turns out!

The film was developed and funded through the new Cine4 initiative; a TG4, Screen Ireland, and BAI partnership. Cathal Watters is the cinematographer on the film and Dermot Diskin will edit. Production Design is by Mark Kelly, Costume Designer is Triona Lillis, and Steve Lynch will score.

‘Finky’ is produced by Abú Media Film Productions with funding from TG4, Screen Ireland, Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) and Section 481.
