Jeremy Irons signs up as ambassador for Cork Screen Commission

The Cork Screen Commission (CSC) is delighted to announce that Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons has signed up to be an ambassador for CSC, which is a jointly funded initiative by Cork City Council and Cork County Council. CSC is a one-stop shop for all film needs in Cork City and County, helping film and television producers find, secure and make the best use of Cork's magnificent locations and highly skilled film work force.

Speaking to Jeremy Irons it becomes immediately clear that he has a deep rooted love of Cork and of its magical landscape.

 "I was attracted to Cork by its end-of-the-roadness, by its culture, its music, by its landscape and by the way the waters knit into the land," explains Jeremy. "When I discovered Cork, which was 23 or 24 years ago, I thought it was sort of like paradise!"

"We're absolutely delighted to have Jeremy agree to be an ambassador for Cork Screen Commission," said Jason O' Mahony, Cork Screen Commission.

"He's one of the most respected actors of all time and it's an absolute honour to have him involved. I think it speaks to the beauty of Cork that Jeremy would choose to live here but it also speaks to the quality of the film professionals in the area that Jeremy would agree to be an ambassador for Cork Screen Commission in an effort to attract more film work to the area."
