A group of Dublin youths form a soul band
This fabulous musical comedy was a film adaptation of Roddy Doyle’s 1987 novel of the same name and was shot on location in Dublin. There are several scenes filmed onboard the city’s DART EMU’s, with Robert Arkins boarding one train at an unknown suburban station. There is also a shot at dusk of DART units crossing the Loopline Bridge across the River Liffey.
