Some 300 local businesses, independent investors, and students have come on board to support the Galway based film Blood, Sweat and Wars. However the movie still needs €85,000 to be completed.
Blood, Sweat and Wars is a feature film by writer/director Stephen P Kenny. It looks at two fictional rival Travelling families at war over the control of Galway’s underground crime.
The film will star Eugene Horan (Ghostwood ) Graham Feeley (Kings ), and Emma Eliza Regan (Our Wonderful Home ), as well as boxers Francie ‘Southpaw’ Barrett, Joe Egan, Sean Mannion, and Michael ‘The Storm’ Sweeney.
There will also be cameo appearances from Ricky Hatton (IBO Light Welterweight World Champion ), Danny Dyer (Severance, Football Factory ), and Frank Harper (In the Name of the Father ).
As a result of the €85,000 needed to complete Blood, Sweat and Wars, the company is hosting a wine and cheese reception ‘investors meeting’ in The Western Hotel on Thursday February 26 at 9pm.

In return for an investment OSP will offer a pro rata stake of 35 per cent of all profits derived from the film in the first three years after delivery
