A film that will be premiered in the Presentation Centre in Enniscorthy, on Friday, June 24, at 8 p.m. was inspired by a true story.

The Three Graces’ was written and directed by Dick Donaghue and produced by Jer Ennis. Featuring an all-star local cast the film tells the tory of Georgina Bennett (Caroline O’Connell) who has been searching for her birth mother all her life.

An encounter at a conference brings her into contact with Maureen Furlong ( Elaine Jordan) and something sparks a recognition that starts them on a journey of acceptance or denial.

Meanwhile Maureen’s two sisters Niamh ( Jennafer Boyd) and Áine ( Karen Franklin) have been noticing odd behaviour by their aged mother (Florence Jordan).

When Maureen returns and relates her story to her sisters they are sceptical and when their mother is confronted she is reluctant to talk.

Finally Maureen invites Georgina to meet her sisters, however, will ‘mother’ accept the consequences and finally put an end to the denial?

The film also stars Jer Ennis, Summer Venn-Keane, Lauren Jordan, Jonathan Breen and Jon King.

The premiere night is being organised to raise money for Slaney Search & Rescue and the main film will be preceded by a screening of a short film titled ‘Oh Brother’, which was written and directed by Jer Ennis.
