Maureen O'Hara has delighted global audiences for an entire lifetime. This year, the Eyeries Family Festival 2011 is honoured to present the Maureen O'Hara Classic Film Festival.
For three days - the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of July 2911 - Festival visitors will have the chance to see some of Ms O'Hara's most powerful performances. Many of her films - as well as those of her contemporaries - will be screened daily at the Eyeries Dance Hall.
Tickets will be available at the door.
Did you know? Maureen O'Hara lives in Glengarrif, only one hour north of Eyeries. Still a true trooper, her wonderful presense often graces the streets of that small town located only minutes from Bantry.
