A series of fundraising events will take place in the coming weeks as the build-up continues to the eagerly awaited Breaffy Oskars.
The Oskars will take place on Friday night, May 11, and will see some 70 locals star in scenes from very well-known films. A total of seven films are being shot including The Shawshank Redemption, The Field, The Snapper, and The Full Monty.
Local actors are currently rehearsing for their films which will be recorded in the next two weeks and the gala red carpet premiere will be The Oskars, in Breaffy Resort Arena, on May 11.
The Oskars is a fundraiser for Breaffy GAA Club facilities and all the teams from under sixes to senior, boys and girls, men’s and ladies clubs. Tickets are on sale now and can be got from anyone taking part, as well as from any member of the Breaffy GAA Executive.
