There was a great buzz at a Westport restaurant last weekend when members from ‘The Banshees of Inisheer’ arrived in for a much-needed break from filming duties.

The highly-anticipated movie is currently being filmed in the Achill area and features Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson among a star-studded cast.

Farrell and Gleeson were among the stars who dropped into An Port Mór last Saturday evening along with Irish actress Kerry Condon and the director/writer/producer of ‘Banshees’ Martin McDonagh.

Chef proprieter of the award-winning An Port Mór Frankie Mallon tweeted: “Great to have Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Martin McDonagh and Kerry Condon in for dinner this evening.. and all our crew never a dull moment.”

The crew of the film have been spotted throughout the west Mayo area in recent weeks. Gleeson recently paid a visit to the Old Irish Goat Visitor Centre in Mulranny. The Centre said of his visit: “Brendan had heard all about the project in his home town of Howth and wanted to learn all about the efforts to save the Old Irish Goat right here in Mulranny.”
