Doineann, meaning ‘stormy weather’ in Irish is the feature debut from Damian McCann and written by local writer and director Aislinn Clarke and was produced by Belfast production house DoubleBand Films.

It tells the story of Siobhan (Clare Monnelly), who disappears with her baby son Oisin on a remote Irish island. Her husband Tomas (Peter Coonan) has made many enemies as a television producer, displeasing many within Dublin’s criminal underworld.
