‘Moone Boy’, is a partnership between Irish production company Grand Pictures, Baby Cow, Sprout Films and Hod Cod productions. It tells the story of 11-year old Martin Moone, a young boy, living in Boyle, Co Roscommon in 1989. Martin, who has a unique perspective on life, is aided by his imaginary friend Sean Murphy played by O’Dowd, in negotiating life as the youngest in his chaotic, scatter-brained family.

Hundreds of young actors auditioned for the part from all over the country but David was the lucky young man selected for the part. He said he loved every moment of the auditions especially relished the opportunity to work with actor and comedian, Chris O’Dowd.
