New VIDEO: Leenaun (Co.Mayo) the village where "The Field" was recorded

If you are familiar with film "The Field", passing thru Leenaun leads to some weird deja-vu. This is where the village sequences of the film were recorded, e.g. the public auction outside the pub.
The well known play "The Beauty Queen of Leenane" is also based here.
Pretty much just a cross roads, it is a tidy enough place with a fairly good view of Killary harbour. Annoyingly, (like many other places) it has 2 spellings: Leenaun & Leenane.
