A couple of months go Maeve McGrath (Producer/Actor), Dave Burns (The Royal) and Limerick Film Festival’s Simon McGuire were interviewed by Grey Heron Media’s Diarmuid McIntyre for their Cultural Passions Radio programme. This episode was recorded at the Theatre Royal Site which is the location of the future Royal Project for Film and Visual Arts.

 

The episode concentrated on the venue as well as the ever growing film industry in Limerick. A number of areas of the industry were discussed while also taking a walk through and around what was one of the finest examples of the vintage cinema spaces Limerick had.

 

The radio programme is on at 5:40pm Sunday 27th on Lyric FM and is on Limerick’s Live 95FM durning the week.

 

Well done to Diarmuid and the team at Grey Heron Media.
