Leitrim County Council is to speak with film maker, Kevin McCann, who is trying to raise funds for a film on Sean Mac Diarmada’s life. The Council has already contributed funds towards the scripting of this project, but Mr McCann is seeking an additional €20,000 towards the budget of US$6m cost of the venture.

Cllr Sean McDermott put forward a motion calling on the Council to support this project, however he was told that there was nothing in the budget for 2014. Cllr McDermott asked the Council to speak with Mr McCann to see if some support could be provided noting this would be a wonderful opportunity to promote Co Leitrim.
