Men At Lunch

Followed by an audience Q & A with Sean Ó’Cúaláin


Belltable | Thur, Oct 5th | 8pm | €10

Over 11 days in October, I.NY explores and celebrates the deep and vibrant connection between Ireland and New York City. The festival invites artists, writers, musicians, educators, entrepreneurs and more to tell the story of how the Ireland New York relationship has impacted their personal, professional and creative lives. It invites as well, an audience from home and abroad, to share their own stories, hear those shared by others, and experience the broader Ireland New York story through a diverse programme of cultural events.

Men At Lunch: Director, producer and writer Sean Ó’ Cúaláin brought one of the world’s most iconic and recognisable photos to life with his documentary ‘Men at Lunch’. Produced by Eamonn Ó’ Cúaláin in conjunction with Sonta Films and TG4, the documentary looks at the men who made up this moment in time during the construction of the Rockefeller Centre in New York City.

The iconic image had little information about those depicted, with the original photographer unknown for many years. A chance encounter in a pub in Galway eventually named the men in the picture, creating an interest in the story behind the photo. ‘Men at Lunch’ explores in particular the story of individual Irish emigrants, the city they moved to and the role they played in that city’s construction.
