The only screenings in Ireland for the moment are in Dublin and Belfast

Maybe we could use the blog to demonstrate an interest in a showing of the film in Cork somehow????

Maybe you could see if you could get a screening of the film in Cork if there was enough interest shown through this blog... the footage in the trailer looks fantastic.

Before I put up this post, I made an enquiry to see if it might be possible so something might come of that. In the meantime, if you are interested in seeing this film in Cork then leave a comment here.

By the way, the film is 88 mins long.

If it's on in Cork, I'm there! It'll be good to meet fellow runners in a social capacity. Strict dress code: no singlets or shorts :)
