Derry Girls actor stars in new Tourism Ireland film

Tourism Ireland shares final film in Abbey Theatre collaborative series 

Tourism Ireland has teamed up with the Abbey Theatre to showcase its new digital theatre experience, Dear Ireland – which brings together the voices of 50 writers and 50 actors in a collection of ‘theatrical postcards’ from Ireland.

To highlight this digital theatre experience and to celebrate our wonderful theatre culture, Tourism Ireland has created a series of three short films with some of the actors and writers involved in the Dear Ireland project – including Derry Girls stars Siobhán McSweeney and Nicola Coughlan, as well as author, activist and teacher Sinéad Burke.

The third and final film in the series features Cork native, Siobhán McSweeney, who shares insights into a piece she performed, called Katty Barry's, written by Karen Cogan. She also speaks about her love for Ireland and, in particular, the Beara Peninsula. The film features spectacular scenery and some of our top attractions like Blarney Castle, the Ha'penny Bridge, Mullaghmore Head, St Anne’s Church in Cork city, the Cliffs of Moher, the Beara Peninsula, Eyeries village and Dursey Island.
