Most noted as the first feature film ever to be made in the Irish language, Poitín is a unique film directed by Bob Quinn.
Starring Cyril Cusack, Donal McCann & Niall Toibin, the film is set in the village of An Ceathrú Rua (Carraroe) which lies in the centre of Connemara’s Gaeltacht region and tells the story on an Irish Poitín (moonshine) maker who is threatened and terrorised by two locals who look to steal the mans Poitín.
The backdrop of the film is that of stunning Connemara scenery, white sandy beaches and glistening rivers.
