Between the Canals

Set over the course of one day, which just happens to be Paddy’s Day, the story sees three small time criminals zip about the city conducting little drug deals, picking fights, enjoying the odd scoop with pretty American tourists and avoiding local head cases (like Damien Dempsey), who is out to settle a score. The unhinged Dots (Peter Coonan) is the muscle of the trio, with the reserved Liam (Dan Hyland) being the brains. Scratchcard (Stephen Jones) is a mixture of the two, happy to align himself with either when it suits him. With an estranged girlfriend and child sitting at home, Liam goes about edging himself away from his two buddies at the behest of a local gangster who promised Liam’s dead uncle that he’d look after him, but breaking free on these mean streets is tougher than it sounds.

Written and directed by Mark O’Connor.
