"The Killing of a One-Eyed Bookie" (2002)

as Sean Weir
Director: Tim Leandro
Bentley Productions


Jamie is kidnapped during a violent ambush in Northern Ireland while impersonating Bill Gracey, a politician whose life is in danger. Henno is furious, knowing his protégé faces torture and likely death. Breaking orders, he heads off into the Republic with Caroline in search of Cullen, a republican double agent, while Jem and Twamley do some digging of their own. Can they find Jamie before time runs out?

Outstanding portrayal by Damian O'Hare of the young IRA "rookie" Sean, whose actions are directed by his wish for justice for his father's death rather than by political or religious ambitions.
