The eagerly awaited Patrick’s Day finally makes its way into Irish cinemas with its Dublin Premiere at the Light House Cinema tonight.

Following a special charity screening in lead actor Moe Dunford’s home town of Dungarvan on Wednesday evening, the cast and crew will bring Patrick’s Day to the Light House Cinema for a gala premiere in aid of Pieta House. Pieta House is a non-profit organisation providing a specialised treatment programme for people who have suicidal ideation or who participate inself-harming behaviors.

It caps a long journey for director Terry McMahon, which has seen his second feature tour the global festival circuit to widespread acclaim, picking up awards at the Galway Film Fleadh, the Cork Film Festival, the Hell’s Half Mile Film Festival, and the Woodstock Film Festival, as well as the DGA Finders Series Award and, most recently, the Manhattan Short Feature Film Project, which will see PATRICK’S DAY being screened in 50 cinemas across the United States from 5-8th March 2015.

Terry will also be joined by cast members Moe Dunford, Catherine Walker, and Philip Jackson, as well as former Chief Psychiatrist of the Eastern Health Board, Prof. Ivor Browne for a screening and panel discussion at the IFI on Friday the 6th at 6:30pm. The panel will be chaired by TV3 journalist and presenter Elaine Crowley. Tickets for the opening night screening at the IFI are available to purchase on their website

PATRICK’S DAY will be released in cinemas around the country from the 6th of February. Check here to see if it’s playing near you and to purchase tickets.
