Ireland on Screen. To speak about Ireland as a location for the many films which are made in this country are Naoise Barry, Film Commissioner, Irish Film Board and Location Manager, Steven Davenport.
Fáilte Ireland reckons one in five tourists come here due to seeing Ireland on screen which equates to €350 million spent each year. That's in addition to the half billion annually in turnover that the film/TV business is worth here.
The Irish Film Board have included a section on their website called "Made in Ireland" with an interactive map of film locations. See http://madeinireland.irishfilmboard.ie/
