Classic Cinema Tarrac – 7th November at 11;30 am Tarrac means ‘to pull’ as Gaeilge and this Irish language film is all about pulling together when times get tough in this intimate character-based drama set in the Kerry Gaeltacht.

Day-to-day they get along fine but as we dig a little deeper, we find out that there is much left unsaid about the loss of Aoife’s mother. This film features an all-women rowing competition at the centre of the film, with the famous Naomhóg – a currach-like boat– which is one of the stars of this gutsy beautiful film.
