Filmed as a pilot for a proposed TV series, ‘The Coalboat Kids and the Pickaroonie’ is a tale taken from the pages of the collection of short stories by Pat Larkin.

This is the tale of a group of kids who lived in the time of the black and white television and in the place where all of Dublin dumped its rubbish, sewage, and anything else it didn’t want. We follow our hero Gitcha and his three pals, Lick the Walls, Mickey Looker and Two Slices, as they head off on their many adventures in Ringsend in the 1960s.
