A redundant baker starts a mobile fish and chip business with his friend
This enjoyable Irish comedy drama was the third installment of Irish author Roddy Doyle’s The Barrytown Trilogy, following The Commitments (qv) and The Snapper. Set largely in and around Dublin there is one close up run by of a pair of 8100 Class DART EMU’s. Look closely, however, and another pair can just be seen passing by in the background of another shot a little while later. These scenes were filmed at locations just to the north of Kilbarrack station which have since been redeveloped.
