Rúaidhrí Conroy [Tayto] and Ciaran Fitzgerald  [Ossie] immortalised on the old Savoy cinema in Portarlington where scenes from Into The West were shot in 1992.

Artist, anyone?



A short documentary by the late Aine O’Connor on the making of ‘Into The West’ (1992), the Jim Sheridan-scripted traveller movie, starring Gabriel Byrne and Ellen Barkin. Includes David Kelly, Colm Meany and the movie’s producer, a very young Harvey Weinstein.
