Local women pick up IFTA honours
TWO LOCAL women picked up awards at the weekend’s glamorous Irish Film and Television Awards.
Dee Corcoran from Bray and won once again for her work as chief hairdresser on the Tudors alongside Greystones woman Sharon Doyle for her makeup work on the popular series.
This was Dees third IFTA, having won in 2004 for King Arthur and 2008 for The Tudors.
Dee has been working in film and television since she was 21 and working on Excaliber. The mother of seven is looking forward to the start of a new series in June.
The local pair were up against Little Dorrit and George Gently but it was the Ardmore Studios favourite that scooped top prize at the IFTAs.
Star of the locally-filmed drama, Cork born Jonathan Rhys Myers, was unable to attend the award ceremony last weekend in the Burlington due to family reasons.
Winners Dee Corcoran and Sharon Doyle.
