High Boot Benny – 1994 – VHS (82 minutes)

Marc O’Shea, Alan Devlin, Frances Tomelty, Fiona Nicholas, Annie Farr.

Directed by Joe Comeford.

When a police informer is found murdered on the property of a small school dedicated to desegregated education on the southern side of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, the school’s directors – a Protestant matron (Frances Tomelty) and an ex-priest (Alan Devlin) – become suspects. Also implicated is Benny (Marc O’Shea), a seventeen-year-old delinquent who has found refuge at the school only to get caught up in the maze of conflict created by the mix of politics and religion.

Never released on DVD and nigh impossible to find on VHS.

In good condition.

€20 plus p+p or can be collected from Enniscorthy.


Spin the Bottle (2004) – newspaper promo copy.

When Rats (Michael McElhatton) is released from prison yet again, his return to his mother’s house gets off to a bad start. The money painstakingly saved to send his aunt to Lourdes (for a miracle cure for her terminal obesity), is stolen. Rats embarks on a series of hilarious, hapless attempts to replace the stolen money before it’s too late to save his stricken auntie. The penny eventually drops and he decides he must use his only weapon – his musical genius. He teams up with sidekicks Tommo (Peter McDonald) and Brainer (Donal O’Kelly) to reform his band, the superb Spermdotcom to raise funds for his auntie.

In good, unplayed condition plus clean cardboard sleeve – see above.

€2 plus p+p.
