Reviews

"With lots of archive footage and interviews with both Eubank and Collins, writer Lydia Monin’s decision to approach the story chronologically pays dividends. And even if you don’t like boxing, this film is still a thrilling watch, packing a punch that Anthony Joshua can only dream of. One Night in Millstreet is knockout!"--The Reviews Hub, November 2023

Andrew Gallimore

Andrew Gallimore was educated at the University of Wales College of Cardiff and the University of Oxford where he was part of the Reuter Foundation Fellowship Programme for International Journalism. Andrew set up an independent production house in 1996 that produced the first Celtic co-production in Irish, Welsh, Scots Gaelic and English, a six part series on Celtic boxing. This was followed by two further series under the same Celtic co-production model. Since then the company's programmes have been distributed to over forty countries and several of these programmes received MEDIA awards. The documentary film version of Andrew's book 'A Bloody Canvas' won an IFTA in 2009 for Best Sports Programme and the BAl-funded 'In Sunshine Or In Shadow ' was screened on Setanta Sports and won the IFTA for Best Sports Programme in 2011.
