Pride in Ireland’s capital city saw the red carpet rolled away and a blue one bought in for the Dublin Oldschool world premiere in the Lighthouse Cinema last night.

The highly anticipated screen adaptation was directed by David Tynan and will be in cinemas from the 29th of June.

Emmet Kirwan has previously described the movie as “Dublin dipped in acid” and believes it shows “Ireland as it is.”

It’s based off his play of the same name and follows the tale of Jason (who Emmet plays) an aspiring DJ.

His life is changed when he crosses paths with his brother, a homeless heroin addict.

Kirwan pulled on real-life experience writing the play and he too has a brother who has triumphed over drug addiction and homelessness.
