The North West MS Therapy Centre is delighted to announce an unprecedented cinematic experience, for people living in the North West of Ireland.
On Wednesday March 5th, a one off charity screening of Sligoman Paul Daveyâ€™s film â€œBreaking Boundaries â€“ Irelandâ€™s Extraordinary Cricket World Cupâ€? will take place at Sligoâ€™s gaiety cinema.
The film captures a behind the scenes viewpoint of an amazing six weeks in the lives of 15 part time Irish sportsmen and for Ireland itself.
Coming from jobs that include a farmer, postman, teachers and salesmen, from both sides of the Irish religious divide, this team experienced an amazing period in their lives, including them causing the biggest upset in world cup history by beating Pakistan, getting caught up in a murder investigation, one of their officials dieing, the effect on the players of Irelandâ€™s peace agreement. the list goes on and the journey for the viewer is a gripping heartfelt one, where you donâ€™t need to know the first thing about cricket to enjoy.
This film has been applauded by critics. The Sunday Tribune called it â€œThe unmissable film of the year, The Mirror described it as â€œBrilliant. an absolute triumphâ€?, the Sunday Times hit the nail on the head and described it as â€œEven non cricket fans will be bowled overâ€¦unforgettableâ€?, BBCâ€™s Alison Mitchell described it as â€œA refreshingly heartfelt filmâ€?. The reviews are still coming in.
The evening will begin at 7:00 PM with a wine and cheese reception followed by the screening of â€œBreaking Boundariesâ€?, which will be introduced by director Paul Davey.
