Fionnula Flanagan, Ian Bannen and David Kelly, are just a few of an excellent cast in this tale about an Irish Lotto-winner, who is unable to collect.
Never have I seen a lovelier yarn, and, I tell ye’, I’ve seen a few! Jackie O’Shea (Ian Bannen) figures out that one of the inhabitants in the local hamlet must have won the latest Lotto draw, and does he best to find out who, by every mean possible, and eventually finds out who.
I don’t want to spoil it, but it sure is a lovely story! Very close to a masterpiece, and it gets better each time I see it!
