    Hi would be very interested in being cast in your new film on the famine in Ireland, I’ve never been involved in a film but I’m in my mid seventy, looking gaunt, no just never put on weight. I very fit for my age as I do a lot of hill and mountain walking. Thanks for your time, Paul Mooney Bellegrove Ballybrittas Co Laois ⛄
