Hennessy’s Gets A Makeover For Filming Of ‘Joyride’

Posted by


Hennessy’s Bar got a change of signage on Thursday for filming scenes for ‘Joyride’.

THERE were a lot of double-takes from locals on Castle Street when The Greyhound Bar appeared to have taken over Hennessy’s on Thursday.

However, it wasn’t like Aidan O’Connor was aiming to emulate Wetherspoons by starting a chain of pubs, rather it was just part of the ongoing filming of the movie ‘Joyride’ in the county.

The interior of Hennessy’s Bar was the location for filming but it also demanded a change of signage outside for one night only.

Filming took place last night while Olivia Colman was scheduled to go to the area in the early hours of this morning to shoot scenes.

Filming for the movie, written by Tralee native Ailbhe Keogan, has been taking place for the past two weeks in Kerry Airport, Lerrig and Tralee with scenes scheduled for Glenbeigh and Brosna over the coming weeks.
