New Teaser Posters Released to Mark World Premiere of The Young Offenders

Posted July 8, 2016 by Suzanne Murray in News

To celebrate the premiere of The Young Offenders happening tonight at 8pm at the Town Hall Theatre as part of the Galway Film Fleadh new teaser posters have been released.

Inspired by Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure of €440 million off the coast of Cork in 2007, The Young Offenders follows two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of coke. They quickly learn that not all plans are idiot proof.

The film was directed by Peter Foott and stars Alex Murphy and Chris Walley. Well known stand-up comedian PJ Gallagher (Naked Camera) and Hilary Rose (Republic of Telly) also star in the comedy. Foott is no stranger to comedy as he is an award-winning writer/director on the Republic of Telly who also directed The Rubber Bandits infamous Horse Outside video.

The Galway premiere has sold out but audiences around the country will have their chance to see the comedy when it is released in cinemas this September.
