SCREENING 10:00-11:30



In association with the IFI we are delighted to bring you our French language feature film screening Intouchables (Untouchable) 15A. This is a fantastic opportunity for those learning French to engage with the language outside of the classroom. A study guide will also be available to accompany the film.


After a paragliding accident, Philippe, a rich aristocrat, hires Driss, a young guy from the projects recently released from prison, as his care-giver… in other words, the person least suited for the job. Together they blend Vivaldi and Earth, Wind and Fire, elegant diction and street jive, suits and sweatpants. Two worlds are going to collide and come to terms with each other to give birth to a friendship as crazy, comical and strong as it is unexpected, to a unique relationship that will create sparks and make them untouchable.


Booking is essential and open to secondary schools through Fresh office 061 319555

Entry 5 euro
