Our rural drama LAMBING has just wrapped after a three-day shoot in Co. Kildare. Huge thanks from myself and Producer Mo O’Connell to all the cast and crew who made this shoot possible and who were wonderful to work with.

Thanks also to our funders at the Kildare ShortGrass Film Bursary and to the IMDb Script to Screen Award team for believing in this project and helping us bring it to life.
