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.

DART EMU’s pass by though they are somewhat obscured by the chain link fence
That fence wasn’t very secure. Just as the train has passed, Brendan O’Carroll, Donal O’Kelly and Colm Meaney cross to the other side of the line just to the north of Kilbarrack station. The since demolished flats of Swan’s Nest Court stand in the background.
Although being far from clear, another DART EMU is visible passing above Colm Meaney’s head
