DAMO & IVOR THE MOVIE has achieved Wildcard Distribution’s 2nd biggest opening weekend at the Irish Box Office after The Young Offenders and charted 4th with €114k over the bank holiday.

Even with the snowy weather, St Patrick’s Day festivities and the Grand Slam rugby win over the weekend, people attended screenings all over the country and took to social media to praise the comedy:

 

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.

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.

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.
