Down Wicklow Way, a Cine-Concert

On Sat 14th Sept at Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray

 This programme of Wicklow films from the IFI Irish Film Archive includes The Legend of the Lough (1937); Rush Hour (1949) a scout-filled caper filmed in Bray; and Wicklow stories from Gael Linn’s newsreels (1956- 64).

The programme highlight is Some Say Chance (1934), an enigmatic drama set in a girls boarding school in Wicklow. Directed by Wicklow resident Michael Farrell and presenting Maureen O’Hara in her screen debut, this recently unearthed silent treasure will be accompanied by another Wicklow resident, leading improvisational pianist, Paul G. Smyth.
