This year I was delighted to have my debut animation short A Quack Too Far premiered at Galway Film Fleadh in the New Irish Talent program along with my classmates from Coláiste Dhúlaigh, Janet Grainer (Outside The Box) and Aidan McAteer (Streets of Fury – and winner of The James Horgan Award for Best Animation at this year’s Fleadh). We had a brilliant weekend in Galway!
