Alex Fegan's recent documentary film The Irish Pub is getting a DVD release and will be available from November 1.

The film is a eulogy to the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub - or more specifically the traditional Irish publicans who run these establishments.

The featured bar folk all run and own pubs that have been in their families for generations and it is through their warmth, wit and wisdom that viewers gain an insight into the essence of the Irish pub experience.

The Irish Pub will be available to buy on DVD from stores nationwide including HMV, Golden Discs, Tower Records, Tesco and Xtra-vision. Pre-orders can be made at www.elementpictures.ie/shop. It will also be available to stream or download from www.volta.ie.

Here's our review of The Irish Pub, along with a video interview with director Alex Fegan:
