Directed by Mark O'Connor (Between the Canals), the film also stars Michael Collins (Man About Dog), newcomer John Connors and non-actors from the Travelling community and features music from Damien Dempsey.

The film tells the story of John Paul Moorehouse (Connors), who tries to find out the truth about who killed his father 12 years earlier.

Director O'Connor said: "We made a film which I hope is entertaining for audiences, as well as being of cultural importance to the Traveller community.

"It was a big risk casting Traveller non-actors in the film, but I felt it was necessary to give the film real authenticity.

"It's very exciting to be able to showcase the film to the Irish public in cinemas."

Patrick O'Neill, CEO of the film's distributors, Wildcard Distribution, added: "King of the Travellers is a fast-paced, exciting look into the Irish Traveller community and Irish filmmaking at its best.

"Mark is a fantastic talent and we can't wait to bring this film to Irish audiences."
