Only in Ballydehob.
Aside from the stunning scenery, the incomparable craic and the excellent food, there’s another reason to head west this weekend.
Levis Corner House has a solid night’s entertainment in store for film buffs as part of the Fastnet Film Festival.
On Saturday night, Pat McCabe will read from his twelfth novel Heartland followed by a Q&A session with actor Brendan Conroy.
A screening of iconic 1997 film The Butcher Boy (written by Pat McCabe and Neil Jordan) will follow, with the movie shown to guests over the Levis’ shop counter.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the story, in The Butcher Boy, Francie and Joe live in the imaginary world of normal boys. However, with a violent, alcoholic father and a manic depressive, suicidal mother, the pressure on Francis to grow up is immense.
Unfortunately Francie world sinks deeper into paronoia and fantasy.
Entry is free and the fun begins at Levis Corner House Ballydehob on Saturday, May 26th at 7pm.
