Imelda May joined Pat Ingoldsby at the launch of Seamus Murphy’s The Peculiar Sensation of being Pat Ingoldsby at the Lighthouse Cinema.
The film examines Irish writer Pat Ingoldsby’s unique world. Ingoldsby’s poems and candid anecdotes bear witness to a visceral relationship with his beloved Dublin, fellow Dubliners and anything that catches his interest.
Personal challenges, a sensitive humanity and a lifetime as a maverick have taught him to harness reality and reach well beyond it to avenge the banal with absurd magic. It heals him as it does us.
The film will hit Irish cinemas on November 4.
