FILM TIPS: A nine-year wait for Toy Story 4 has meant that anyone who saw the previous instalment in the cinema is rather more mature by now. Whether that means you’re 18 or 88, the latest offering by John Lasseter and co is arguably the most exciting film of the year, and early reviews have been good. Go see it. Less blockbuster offerings include the excellent Gloria Bell, at Triskel in Cork from Sunday, starring Julianne Moore in a comedy drama about a free-spirited divorcée. Triskel also has ‘heartwarming’ maternal French film In Safe Hands.
A MOST unusual annual phenomenon occurs in the village of Lahardane, at the butt of Nephin along the shore of Lough Conn in Co Mayo: the bell at St Patrick’s church rings out across the silent countryside between 2am and 3am on April 15 in remembrance of those lost with the Titanic 500 miles west of Newfoundland at that time and on that date 95 years ago this spring.
