Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Chasing The Dragon

It suddenly dawned on me today why there’s a menagerie of film-related vehicles in the tennis club car park down the road from my house: they’re filming Chasing the Dragon, the new film based on the Veronica Guerin murder with Cate Blanchett. Another film was made based on the same events (although using different names) a couple of years ago with Joan Allen. People didn’t go to see it. I remember watching the end of it whilst skiving off during an ushering shift at the multiplex.
