Movie Screening at The Burren – December 20th

“The Godfather – Brendan Gleeson Meets Brian Rooney”


The Burren bar in Somerville will be screening the fantastic TG4 documentary on the life of Leitrim fiddle player, Brian Rooney. Brian hails from Derragoon, near Kiltyclogher, North County Letrim.

The documentary takes us on a journey through his life, music and how he has overcome illness. He is accompanied on this journey by the actor and fiddle player Brendan Gleeson, who has starred in such movies as Braveheart, The gangs of New York and Harry Potter.

The screening will happen Sunday Dec 20th at 8pm and admission will be free.

“Brian played the Burren about 12 years ago. We had a great night and a lot of support from the Leitrim Society. Hope we can repeat it. It’s a lovely story about Brian and some lovely clips of his home place.”

If you’re done with your Christmas shopping and need to wind down, please drop into The Burren, 247 Elm St., Davis Square, Somerville to celebrate this fine Leitrim man!
