7th March - Irish Film Night: It's The Real McCoy
St Patrick's Church Hall, Mayo Suite, John St, Coatbridge
Come along and enjoy this DVD production of a hilarious comedy by Tommy Marren.
It’s the Real McCoy is set in rural Ireland over two days in the spring of 1964. It tells the story of Madge Molloy – a woman in her late sixties – who has lived over forty years of her life wondering why her husband, Tom, whom she was married to for just five months, disappeared without trace or reason. Madge was expecting her only child at the time and was left to rear Maura on their small farm.
Needless to say, Madge has became bitter about men in general but the arrival of a new curate to the parish – namely Fr. Michael McCoy – is about to reveal the circumstances behind her husband’s hasty exit and his wish to return to explain to Madge why he left.
