Brooklyn, the Oscar-tipped Saoirse Ronan-starring adaptation of the Colm Tóibín bestseller, is to have its Irish premiere at Dublin's Savoy Cinema next month. 

Ronan and Tóibín will be joined on the red carpet at the Savoy on Thursday October 22 by the film's director, John Crowley, and producer, Finola Dwyer.

Adapted by Nick Hornby, Brooklyn tells the story of Eilis Lacey (Ronan), who leaves 1950s Ireland for New York.

There, she falls in love but later has to choose between her life in the US and her life back home.

Filming took place in Wexford, Dublin and Wicklow, and the cast also includes Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. 

Star Ronan and author Tóibín will also attended a special black-tie screening of Brooklyn on Wednesday October 28 in Enniscorthy's Riverside Park Hotel. The majority of the film was shot in the Wexford town. 

Brooklyn opens in Irish cinemas on Friday November 6.
