A Very Irish Road Movie



 Iseult Casey as Maggie in ‘Twice Shy’

‘Twice Shy’

A ‘modern coming of age drama’ about a young Irish woman’s journey to London with her boyfriend to have an abortion starring Iseult Casey (as Maggie),  Shane Murray-Corcoran (as Andy), Pat Shortt, Ardal O’Hanlon, Mary Conroy and Paul Ronan has just wrapped filming.

The independent feature [set in Tipperary, Dublin and London] is written and directed by Tom Ryan, who made the acclaimed Nenagh-based comedy drama Trampoline (2013).

Despite the subject matter, Tom sez:

“We want to show how an unplanned pregnancy can affect both parties in a relationship and we want to do it in a way that isn’t too grim or heavy for an audience, while still giving it the weight that it needs.We are hoping that the film will go some way to showing the issue in a new light.”

Twice Shy will be released in Spring 2016.

To coincide with a repeal of the Eight Amendment.

    Pro choicers are always telling us that an abortion is not that big a deal. It’s not the life destroying personal trauma that the pro life lobby are making it to be.
    Bar the minor inconvenience of taking a trip to the UK, what’s the big problem here?

        Agree. Jonotti I feel the major point of this comment could be refined a lot to be at least 5 times more trolly.

            Oh come on Jonotti, No one can tell you anything, you know it all because you have a PhD in everything.

            This is boring, J – clearly travelling abroad adds unecessary cost, time & loneliness to a medical procedure.

            There is also the symbolic side of publically refusing to allow women have choice over their own bodies while hypocritically allowing them fly abroad to take that control.

            Also the social issue ssurrounding travelling, which serves to isolate and make each mother/family feel like they’re the only ones in their situation, despite an average of 9 other women travelling (often on their own) that same day.

        This is obviously a triggering issue for Jonotti. He had to go through the trauma of travelling abroad to procure his three international caps, so cut him some slack, okay?

        Give what a rest? Posting comments? But that would reduce the number of opportunities for you to do your faux “am I bovered” thing.

      True, the content and the claims of what content is in them are worlds apart.

      But don’t let that stop the anti-abortionist / anti-women groups doing what they do best, obfuscate the info/ stats so that you can make any ol’ makey-up claim they want. I hear they’ll be proving the world is flat in their next video.

        There are some interesting quotes in those videos. They may not be a smoking gun but they give a insight into that industry.
