Event description



presented by Kerry Film Festival in association with Lixnaw Community.

On a summer evening, there’s nothing quite like watching a movie under the stars. Now in our third year, Kerry Film Festival is delighted to announce our ‘Summer Open Air Cinema’ programme for 2017. Right around the county, we will be bringing our Open Air Cinema to stunning parks and locations for everyone to enjoy.

These FREE events are in partnership with Kerry County Council and we thank them for their continued support.

WAKING NED DEVINE (1998) 91mins- Director: Kirk Jones

When Ned Devine dies from shock after winning the lottery, two longtime friends, Micheal and Jackie, discover the body and agree Ned would want them to benefit from his good luck. They embark upon an outrageous scheme to claim the ticket but first they have to get all the townsfolk to go along with their plan!

When local wag Jackie O'Shea (Ian Bannen) discovers that one of his neighbors in the village of Tulaigh Mohr is a lottery winner he sees a chance to share in the wealth. Things get complicated when Jackie and his pal Michael O'Sullivan (David Kelly) discover that the winner, Ned Devine, died of shock at the very moment he learned of becoming a millionaire. Undaunted, Jackie and Michael dispose of the lucky stiff and hatch a plot to impersonate him and claim the prize. Soon the whole village is involved and the plot rapidly thickens.
