Garech Browne: The Last Days at Luggala

Garech Browne: Last Days at Luggala is an obituary of one of the greatest modern patrons of the arts; a roguish but generous visionary and a thoroughly Irish dandy.  His sudden death in 2018 left a gap in the diversity of Irish culture, but in that wake lies a cracking yarn of stories that give us a unique glimpse into Ireland of the fifties, sixties and beyond, and a moving story of a man’s personal battle against ghosts of the past. After all is said and done the Hon. Garech Browne has left the Irish nation an irreplaceable treasure trove of gems, including not least the archives of Claddagh Records. This film features previously unseen footage and interviews filmed with Garech just before his sudden death. Contributors include John Boorman, Paddy Moloney, Dolly MacMahon, Paul Howard and Bono.
