The Newport Beach Film Festival’s Irish Showcase Celebration, presented by Guinness, honored the best in Irish Filmmaking. It was hosted by the Daily Pilot and featured top Entertainment and hors d’oeuvres prepared by Muldoon’s Irish Pub. The event was on Sunday, May 1. It was a celebration of Irish cinema at Edwards Big Newport. The Irish Films featured were Metal Heart, The Belly of the Whale, and Rosie. The movie premiers were followed by a festive Irish Gala at Muldoon’s Irish Pub in Newport Beach, where we enjoyed an amazing live band playing wonderful Irish music and enjoyed some delicious Irish Food, including sliders, potato pancakes, chicken wings, sausages, as well as an assortment of cheese and grapes. They also allowed guests to sign up and get a free Guinness glass for beer with personal engravings.
Some special guests at the event included the band Single by Sunday. OC Event Photos had a great time being the event photographer for the Irish Spotlight this year. You can see more photos on their official Instagram page.
