Film & TV

I am currently developing several film and television projects and am always open to discussing new ideas.

Writing Credits: 

  • Callan's Kicks - political satire on Radio One (Catchy Title) - 2017/2018

  • Red Rock - continuing drama (Element Pictures) - 2018

  • Nowhere Fast - comedy series (Deadpan Pictures) - 2017

  • Burning Wishes - web-series (Deadpan Pictures) - 2015

  • Republic of Telly - sketch show (RTE 2) - 2014/2015

  • No Messages - short film (Tengger Productions) - 2012




Burning Wishes is a four part web-series I wrote for the RTE/Irish Film Board 2014 Storyland scheme.

It was directed by Vincent Gallagher and produced by Ailish McElmeel for Deadpan Pictures. 

I am currently developing Burning Wishes into a 6 x 30 min comedy series with Deadpan Pictures and Kew Media.

Writing in the Evening Herald, Pat Stacey said the series was "a broad, confident, extremely funny romp." 

In June 2015 Vincent won Best Director at the SF Web Fest in San Francisco. 

You can watch the teaser trailer for Burning Wishes above.


No Messages

No Messages is an independently funded short I wrote and directed in 2012. It stars Rory Connolly (The Walshes), David Murray (Amber, Vikings, Batman Begins), Eric Lalor (Amber, The Commute) & Lacy Moore (Game of Thrones, The Clinic, Emmerdale). It screened at eighteen festivals across Ireland, Europe and North America winning five awards.

You can watch the full film above.


" the pilot for a situation comedy that you might actually want to watch. The acting was confident. The jokes were secure." Donald Clarke, The Irish Times.

"Everything about No Messages works, from McGarrigle's spot-on story to his perfectly chosen cast." The Independent Critic.
