Young filmmakers hope to be mobbed with extras!

Two young filmmakers - who have the dream of making it big in the film industry - are seeking extras for their new film.

David Coffey Weakley and Roman Gallagher from Listry are looking for extras to take part in a scene in their new film 'Mob 2' which they will film in town on November 16.

They plan to film in a number of streets in the town for about two hours from 2am and need people in the background to create a busy scene.

The childhood friends set up D&R Productions in December 2019 and have made a number of other short films together with dreams of hitting the big time in the film industry.

"We both have a passion for filmmaking," David, who works in Foley's Fossa, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"This film 'Mob 2' will be longer, about an hour. We have filmed some scenes since June and hope to have it ready by early next month."

David enjoys acting and writing scripts while Roman, who works in the Plaza Hotel, enjoys editing and camera work.

The film is a crime drama, he added.

"'Mob 2' is a gangster film about Thomas Crane. He's trying to take over the Irish side of the gangs but then he realises his past comes back to haunt him from Mob 1. We're looking for 10 extras of any age to create a scene. It's towards the end of the film and we'll be running through the busy streets."

Anyone who'd like to take part can email productionsdr99@gmail.com.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
