The Irish Pub is a eulogy to the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub or more specifically the Irish traditional publican. These characters come from a long line of family generations to run and own their family pub. It is interwoven into Irish society. The famine, religious persecution and cultural enrichment all started and ended in the pub. The stories these men and women tell capture days gone by and it is feared these will be the last in a long line of family publicans who lived and died in their pubs with little interaction beyond that point.

The Irish Pub film received completion funding from The Irish Film Board and has been picked up by Element Pictures Distribution for a general release in selected cinemas in October 2013.

 

The Irish Pub was directed, produced, filmed and edited by Alex Fegan.

Original music score by Denis Clohessy
