Tarrac - Drama

Director: Declan Recks

A contemporary drama set on the coastlines of Kerry in the tough world of Naomhóg racing.

"Tarrac puts a new set of oars into an old-fashioned sporting underdog story: the ‘naomhog’, or ‘currach’, is not something widely known outside Ireland and even there, an all-women racing team, in this rowing boat made from wood, tar and canvas, is niche. Yet it’s the star of Declan Recks’ entertaining drama – alongside the four ladies determined to win the regional (Munster) finals for their small Irish-speaking Kerry village for the first time in 22 years. Using familiar building blocks, Tarrac confidently builds to an emotional finale amid a nicely-etched father-daughter relationship" - Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
