Fantastic - good luck to everyone involved. If you hear about any screenings in London, please could you flag them up. I'd love to see this film - my dad came over from Mayo aged 16 to shovel shit.

Nice one. Well done to all involved.

So I guess this means you can speak Gaelic then Danny? Unless they sent translations to you? That's not as out there as it sounds - I've script edited for a German guy and a Flemish girl in English which they duly changed later. But if you could speak Gaelic I would really love to know 'cos I need to know a few phrases...

Naw, my Irish is really poor, I'm ashamed to say. I was working on an English version of the script. I do have some basic phrases and a 'Learn Irish' tape, so maybe I could be of some help, y'never know, just drop me an email or wotevah. Slán abhaile.
