The Miracle Club

The best journeys take you home.


The Miracle Club
Ballygar, Ireland, 1967. A hard-knocks community in outer Dublin marches to its own beat, rooted in traditions of loyalty, faith and togetherness. There’s just one tantalising dream for the women of Ballygar to taste freedom and escape the gauntlet of domestic life: to win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town of Lourdes. And with a little benevolent interference from their cheeky and rebellious priest, close friends Lily, Eileen, Dolly and Sheila are the ’lucky’ few to win this ticket of a lifetime at their riotous local raffle night.

90 minutes.
Parental Guidance 10-12 (Drug abuse).
