Broadsheet Trailer Park: The Queen Of Ireland

at

Queen of Ireland

What you may need to know:

1. Documentary following Rory O’Neill/Panti Bliss through a tumultuous year that included Pantigate, the seminal “Noble Call” speech at the Abbey, and the historic vote on Marriage Equality.

2. With contributions from O’Neill’s parents, David Norris and Una Mullally (who still rocks).

3. Irish production company Blinder Films collected €50,000 through crowdsourcing. Just think what they could have done with €85,000.

4. The soundtrack includes classics such as Troublesome Waters, Talk Shows on Mute and IONA Want To Be With You.

5. With a bit of luck, we may finally discover how a lad from rural Mayo ended up with that vexing American twang.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Team Panti 4 life, yo.

Release Date: October 21.

    “from O’Neill’s parents, David Norris and Una Mullally…”

    I think that reads differently from what you meant but is oh so funny.

      If you voted Yes for marriage equality then I’m afraid viewing is mandatory. It will be broadcast on telescreens round the clock for a week.

    Whats with the blinker vision on here. He’s self serving, a complete attention whore. And before the same old knob heads start giving abuse, I don’t dislike him because he’s gay, I dislike like him because he’s delusional.

        My comment was edited so it lost a bit of its tone and point. But i totally agree with you, I dislike him because iv the hots for him, why didn’t I see it before now. If he’s a good role model to anyone then I’d hate to see who’s a bad one.

            Its things like this and I quote “I’m..think about it every single person in this audience has a cousin or a neighbour or the guy that you work with who is a flaming queen. I mean you all know one” I’m sorry but if that was straight guy who said that you’d all be up in arms. I can state for a fact none of my mates are flaming Queens, gay yes but your stereotypical Queen no. Oh and the fact his bar broke the rules with its sign, I agree it’s a ridiculous rule/law, but still the bar broke it and he tried to say it’s a beacon of the gay community blah blah so it’s important enough to break the rules. Sorry iv drank in that bar loads of times no one iv drink with gives that sign a thought. So like I said delusional self serving knob.

            Said quote was in reference to your comments in general.
