Terry McMahon to attend Sligo Screening of Patrick’s Day

Posted February 12, 2015 by Conor McDevitt in News

Director Terry McMahon will attend the opening night of Patrick’s Day at the Gaiety Cinema Sligo and take part in a post-screening Q&A on Friday 13th February at 18:30. This special charity showing of the film is in association with Rennafix and the Sligo Rape Crisis Centre.  The screening has a special significance for everyone who worked on the film, as Sligo is the hometown of costume designer Gaby Rooney who tragically passed away last month. Speaking to IFTN ahead of the films’s release the director said “…Gaby Rooney, with superb vision, complex pathos and seductive humour, was our costume designer on Patrick’s Day, and we were all looking forward to drinking with him during the cinema release, but he didn’t make it. We would like to send our condolences to his family and raise a glass in silence to a beautiful man. R.I.P.” Friends and family of Mr. Rooney will be in attendance on the night.

Patrick’s Day will also open on the 13th of February in The Reel Picture, Blackpool, Co. Cork, and continues to screen around the country in the following locations – The Irish Film Institute, IMC Dun Laoghaire, Movies@Dundrum, Movies@Swords, Movies@Gorey, Omniplex Rathmines, Omniplex Cork, Omniplex Limerick, Arc Cinema Drogheda, The Eye Galway, and Mayo Movieworld.

Additionally, it will open in IMC Dundalk, IMC Carlow, and Century Cinemas Letterkenny on the 20th of February.

Tickets for the charity screening and Q&A can be purchased on the Gaiety Cinema Sligo website.
