Ahead of its World Premiere tonight (Friday July 8th) as part of the Galway Film Fleadh, Wildcard Distribution has released two new teaser posters for Cork comedy The Young Offenders.

Inspired by Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure of €440 million off the coast of Cork in 2007, The Young Offenders follows two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of coke. They quickly learn that not all plans are idiot proof.

The film was directed by Peter Foott, and stars Alex Murphy and Chris Walley. Well known stand-up comedian PJ Gallagher (Naked Camera) and Hilary Rose (Republic of Telly) also star in the comedy. Foott is no stranger to comedy as he is an award-winning writer/director on the Republic of Telly, and also directed The Rubber Bandits infamous Horse Outside video.

The Galway premiere has sold out but audiences around the country will have their chance to see the comedy when it is released in cinemas this September.
