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.’
