Ardmore Studios is hailed for outstanding film work
OIREACHTAS TOUR ‘TUDORS’ AMONG POPULAR PRODUCTIONS TAKING PLACE
BRAY WOMAN and Labour TD Deputy Liz McManus welcomed her colleagues from the Oireachtas Committee on Communications to a tour of Ardmore Studios recently.
‘It was an excellent opportunity for Oireachtas members to see the work being done at the studios, in particular being able to view the set of The Tudors,’ Deputy McManus.
‘We are very proud of the role that Ardmore Studios has in film making in Ireland and its long standing connection with the town of Bray,’ she added.
The meeting was organised to meet the Screen Producers of Ireland who have particular concerns regarding the Broadcasting Bill 2008 currently going through the Dail. ‘We had a full and frank discussion about improvements sought by the Independent Sector,’ said Deputy McManus.
‘I look forward to raising some of the issues discussed when the Bill reaches the Committee Stage. Today was an opportunity for Members to gain valuable insight into the importance of film making to the national economy as well as to the local economy.’
The Tudors is just one of the successes hailing from Ardmore Studios.
