Cré na Cille, ar an Aoine ar 7pm.

‘Cré na Cille’ is a darkly-humorous tale of an intense jealousy between two sisters which worsens with age…and continues into the afterlife! The film is based upon the classic book by renowned Irish language writer, Máirtín Ó Cadhain.

Ciarán Ó Cofaigh, producer of ‘Cré na Cille’,  says that:

Máirtín Ó Cadhain’s novel is probably the most important contemporary literary piece of work written in the Irish language. Our film adaptation accentuates the comedic element of this fantastic piece of work and makes it much more accessible to both Irish and non-Irish speaking audiences.

Cré na Cille runs 94 mins and will have English subtitles. You can get a sneak-peak of the film and a short introduction to the author from the links below.

Sonraí / Details: 7pm, Aoine (3/28).
Popcorn and snacks will be ready!
