The Priests' Film


Towards the end of 2011, The Priests were approached by a screenwriter who asked if he could write the story of their musical lives with a view to it being a film.

'Raising The Roof'
is currently in pre-production in Hollywood and is set for release late 2017.


Comments from the Press

"Smouldering and handsome: Yes, George Clooney has attributes to star as Fr Eugene O'Hagan."

"Fr Eugene O'Hagan is dead serious about it - he wants George Clooney to play him in a film. 'And Pierce Brosnan could be my brother, Fr Martin O’Hagan, and Liam Neeson could be fellow Ballymena man, Fr David Delargy,' he adds."
