Waking Ned (Waking Ned Devine) | 1998

A lottery win for a dead man has crafty oldsters Jackie O’Shea and Michael O’Sullivan (Ian Bannen and David Kelly) devising a scam to get the money.

The fictitious ‘Irish’ village of ‘Tullymore’ is Cregneish, on the A31 at the southwest tip of the Isle of Man, in the Irish sea between northern England and ireland, which is rapidly establishing itself as an important centre for UK film-making.

The Isle of Man has can be reached by air from more than 20 airports across the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands (some flights from the northwest of England take under 30 minutes).

Alternatively, there are fast craft and conventional ferry services from the north of England, Belfast and Dublin.
