    Mullingar is mentned in it alright, but I dont recognise any of the places. Maybe it was somewhere around Mullingar, Ballymahon or Killucan or somewhere like that.

    I'm especially interested in the scene where they rob the garage. Finding out where thas was is something I have to do before I die!!!!

    There's also a facebook campaign about it. So that should have it sorted soon.

    Is that the one called "The Concorde Lounge" in the film, or the other one in Cork where Git gets bet up?

    The nightclub scenes at the start were filmed in Dowling's Pub in Prosperous, Co. Kildare. The nightclub is closed now but the pub is still open.
    I'm pretty sure the garage scene was filmed in Clane, Co. Kildare. There's been some major development done on that site in the meantime.

    The "boom boom rooms"???

    That was just put up for the film. There used to be a Dance Hall behind the garage known locally as Behan's Hall. It's a gym now.

    As far as I know it was called the black loin, yeah its the pub where he gets bet up, and falls against the car with blood all over his face when he goes back out to Bunny..

    Edit post above mine says its called the Black an Amber.. Dunno where I got the Black Loin from, I remember seeing the big black an yellow sign tho..

    On again there on rte2, it’s a great quirky little movie.

    Was there any reason it took them 25 years to resolve the feud or did it just not make sense?
