Still 1

Written & directed by the maker of “Older Than Ireland” and “The Irish Pub”, Abbeyfealegood is a documentary exploring the full spectrum of human experience – from the tragic to the magic – through the 16 barbers and hairdressers in the town Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick.

Abbeyfeale, with a population of two thousand people has more hairdressers and barbers per head of population than any other town in Ireland. Locals frequent them to look good and to feel good, and whether they be young or old, they also come to talk.

There is a unique and intimate bond between customers and hairdressers and in the mirrors of these salons, stories unfold that elevate ordinary, everyday existence into something universal and extraordinary.
