SGC Dungarvan will play host to three simultaneous, sold out screenings of PATRICK’S DAY this Wednesday 4th February as the town welcomes home native son Moe Dunford for a special charity event in aid of Pieta House, No Name Club, and Soroptimist Club Dungarvan. Moe will attend the screening along with director Terry McMahon and members of the cast and participate in a post-screening Q&A  with Today FM’s Ed Smith.

Speaking of the Dungarvan premiere Moe Dunford commented “I’m very proud of this film, and hugely proud of my hometown Dungarvan. PATRICK’S DAY is a film about having the courage to make a better future, and like many towns in Ireland, Dungarvan has gone through its own hell yet has had the courage to fight for that future.  And I want everyone to feel part of this, because they are”.

Moe Dunford has already gained numerous plaudits for his performance in Terry McMahon’s film and next week will be awarded the prestigious EFP Shooting Star Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, which recognizes the next generation of acting talent across the continent.
