The Snapper, DVD DVD


Second part of Roddy Doyle's 'Barrytown' trilogy - preceded by 'The Commitments' and followed by 'The Van'.

Dessie Curley (Colm Meaney) is a plasterer who lives with his wife Kay (Ruth McCabe) and six lively children, one of whom, Sharon (Tina Kellegher), announces that she is pregnant.

The family don't believe her story that the dad is a Spanish sailor, and suspicion falls upon a neighbour (Pat Laffan) who is just about to leave his wife.
