GARECH BROWNE LAST DAYS AT LUGGALA
This film is an obituary of one of the greatest modern patrons of the arts, Garech Browne; a roguish but generous visionary and a thoroughly Irish dandy. His sudden death in 2018 left a gap in the diversity of Irish culture. This film features previously unseen footage and interviews filmed with Garech in his beloved home in Luggala, Co. Wicklow, just before his death. During the making of this film, we have unearthed many archive gems from dusty attics. Additional contributors include John Boorman, Paddy Moloney, Dolly MacMahon, Paul Howard and Bono.
Produced for RTÉ, with the development support of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland. Exec. Producer John Boorman, Director Mick Mahon.
