Dont think theres been a thread on this yet so here goes ...
First one up .... Intermission 2003
A raucous story of the interweaving lives and loves of small-town delinquents, shady cops, pretty good girls and very bad boys. With Irish guts and grit, lives collide, preconceptions shatter and romance is tested to the extreme. An ill-timed and poorly executed couple's break-up sets off a chain of events affecting everyone in town.
There's the hapless romantic and his sex-starved best friend, the hotshot detective and the crook he's after, a young girl on the rebound with an older married man -- not to mention his deserted wife, an ambitious TV producer, an abandoned fiancée, a preteen trouble-maker -- all of whom are unaware of how their choices are profoundly intertwined. Add a botched robbery, some brown sauce, a woman's moustache, flying rocks and dancing single seniors and you have "Intermission."
Have to say that the cast is very good, Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy, Colm Meaney, Deirdre O'Kane, Shirley Henderson and Kelly MacDonald (who i always thought was Irish but she is Scottish) and the story line was good. As comedies go its very well done i thought.

My dream is to one day see an Irish film without Colm Meaney, Adrian Dunbar or Sean Mc****ingGinley in it.
The Wind That Shakes The Barley
The Wind That Shakes the Barley is a 2006 Ken Loach film set during the Irish War of Independence (1919–21) and the Irish Civil War (1922–3). Written by long-time Loach collaborator Paul Laverty, this drama tells the story of two County Cork brothers, played by Cillian Murphy and Pádraic Delaney, who join the Irish Republican Army to fight for Irish independence from Great Britain.
I Went Down. Ticks those boxes, and is one of the best Irish films ever to boot.

Yo te quiero, mi querida. Sin tus besos, yo soy nada.
Abri o portão de ouro, da maquina do tempo.
Mi mamá me hizo guapo, listo y antimadridista.
You didn't even need those cars, Vin. The violence was inside you the whole time.
Man About Dog - 2004
There is a good review of this film here -> "Three pedigree chumps learn that every underdog has its day in this freewheeling Irish comedy. In hock to the tune of £50,000 to a Belfast bookie and saddled with a dopey greyhound that wouldn't run if its backside was on fire, Mo Chara (Allen Leech), his perpetually stoned mate 'Cerebral' Paulsey (Tom Murphy), and the terminally unlucky Scud (Ciaran Nolan) head south in the hope of seeing a man about a dog. Foul-mouthed and funny, Man About Dog is full of great craic."
