'You might not make a lot of money but you’ll be happy... that’s more important' - Pat Shortt on what his struggles taught him about life
Pat Shortt is in huge demand. TV3’s acclaimed, three-part familial drama, Smalltown - in which Shortt starred as a struggling farmer, father and husband - proved a massive hit with audiences last month. Declan Recks’ big-screen, comedy caper, The Flag (again, starring Shortt in the lead role) is due in cinemas this Friday. They are both, to an extent, about emigration – albeit, in very different ways.
