Thank you to all those who turned up for the New Ross Red Carpet Premiere of the Brian O’Malley award winning movie,”The Lodgers” on Tuesday the 13th March at St Michaels Theatre, a very enjoyable night was had by all.. If you have not yet seen the movie we recommend that you do..it portrays our district and county at its best…..filmed on location in Loftus Hall, Johnstown Castle, Tintern & Clongeen………
About the Movie………… Set in 1920’s rural Ireland. Anglo Irish twins Rachel and Edward share a strange existence in their crumbling family estate. Each night, the property becomes the domain of a sinister presence (The Lodgers) which enforces three rules upon the twins: they must be in bed by midnight; they may not permit an outsider past the threshold; if one attempts to escape, the life of the other is placed in jeopardy. When troubled war veteran Sean returns to the nearby village, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious Rachel, who in turn begins to break the rules set out by The Lodgers. The consequences pull Rachel into a deadly confrontation with her brother – and with the curse that haunts them.
