Tourism Ireland Shares Third Film In Abbey Theatre Collaborative Series

Tourism Ireland has released the third short film in its "theatrical postcard" series.

The organisation announced last month that it has teamed up with Dublin's Abbey Theatre to showcase the venue's new digital theatre experience, "Dear Ireland", which brings together the voices of 50 writers and 50 actors in a collection of "theatrical postcards" from Ireland, and that it was creating three short films with some of the actors and writers involved in the "Dear Ireland" project.

The first film in the series featured Sinéad Burke sharing insights into her play, These Four Walls.

The second film featured Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan sharing insights into a piece she performed called Your Hands, which was written by John O'Donovan.

Third Film Details

The newly-released third and final film in the series features Derry Girls star Siobhán McSweeney, who shares insights into a piece she performed called Katty Barry's, which was written by Karen Cogan. She also speaks about her love for Ireland and, in particular, the Beara Peninsula. The film features attractions and scenery such as Blarney Castle, the Ha'penny Bridge, Mullaghmore Head, St. Anne's Church in Cork city, the Cliffs of Moher, Eyeries village, Dursey Island and the Beara Peninsula.
