Galway Film Fleadh Winners Include Glassland and Brown Bag Films

The 2014 Galway Film Fleadh is over and after 6 days of celebrating the best in Irish filmmaking its time to see who walked away with the biggest awards.

Gerard Barret's second film Glassland was one of the best reviewed films of the fest and it also secured some more attention by picking up the award for Best Irish Feature. And that honour was shared with another interesting film, Terry McMahon's Patrick's Day. It's the directors follow up to his controversial Charlie Casanova and has also been earning strong notices.

Elsewhere, I Used to Live Here by Frank Berry won the Best Irish First Feature Award and there was recognition for Irish docs Blood Fruit and One Million Dubliners.
