Your trusted Irish source for film news, reviews and features.

About Us

The original Spooool.com was set up in October 2011 by two movie nuts, Páraic McGeough and Nigel Wheatley, who at the time, were living in Dublin and Toronto respectively.

In December 2012 with both members of the union now living on Irish soil, Spooool.com was magically transformed into Spooool.ie. The site then began to focus on cinema from a uniquely Irish perspective and bring readers the news, reviews and features for the films that matter. Nowadays we’re mostly publishing a monthly podcast with occasional Irish film festival coverage, Best Ofs, and film reviews.

First film I saw in the cinema that I can remember: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – age 4 in a cinema up north while we were on our summer holidays and Mum used her cigarette lighter to figure out the flavour of the crisps we’d smuggled in.
First film I saw in Monaghan cinema when it opened: Hook – my brother Stephen took me and his fingers turned yellow from the cheap popcorn.
