The Northsiders is the latest TV pilot produced by Four Courts Films. Set in the town of Finglas, this original dark comedy unfolds against the backdrop of contemporary life on the northside of Dublin.
Our story centres on local man Bismarck Doyle and follows the trials and tribulations of himself, his family and community. The dark wit and dialogue reflect the inherent tragi-comedic hope that the Irish can maintain in the face of difficulty.
Written by Paul Murphy, produced and directed by Robert O’Meara, starring Karl Shiels.
