Ellie O’Halloran makes her filming debut.

Westside Student Ellie O’Halloran will make her filming debut in ROSIE this autumn.

Roddy Doyle’s first original screenplay in 18 years, tells the story of ROSIE a mother trying to protect her family after their landlord sells their rented home and they become homeless. Finding a room, even for a night, is a tough job and finding somewhere permanent to live is even harder. 

Ellie plays Rosie’s daughter Kayleigh and wraps filming in Dublin today. It’s been an exciting few weeks as this is Ellie’s first professional role. She has thoroughly enjoyed her time on set playing Rosie (Sarah Greene) and John Paul’s (Moe Dunford) daughter in this compelling story which examines how, even in times of crises; the love and strength of a family can endure.

ROSIE was shot in and around Dublin over the last four weeks and is backed by the Irish Film Board, Element Pictures Distribution and BAI.

Irish and UK audiences will get the chance to see ROSIE this Autumn when it’s released through Element Pictures Distribution.
