    it would be worth seeing if Rocky Ros Muc were just a film about the boxing career of Seán Ó Mainnín/Sean Mannion, a man who fought at the highest level not for himself but for his home place and for his country and for his language It is also about emigration, about patriotism, about how boxers are treated about the Irish mafia and so much more. There will be a Q & A session with Director Michael Fanning and Associate Producer and author of bhe book Rocky Ros Muc, Rónán Mac Con Iomaire after the screening at the QFT this Friday at 6.40pm and there are still some tickets left for that and for the Irish language screening which is on Sunday at 6.10pm. You can book tickets for both or either from queensfilmtheatre.com/Whats-Ón/Rocky-Ros-Muc
