LOOKING FOR A film that reminds you of your youth? Three words: Into The West.

When you were a kid, you wished you could have a pet horse in the house

“Mam, can’t we get a horse, pleaaaase?”


Because you loved Tír na nÓg so much

The ‘horse in the lift’ scene might just rank among your favourite film scenes ever

You had nothing but love for Tayto and Ossie

The little dotes.


And you refuse to believe IMDb when it says Tayto was actually called “Tito”

Silly Americans.

Ireland being Ireland, there’s a chance this has happened…

The film also features all the best Irish people…

Like David Kelly…
