President Higgins attends Pursuit premiere at The Square Tallaght


President Michael D. Higgins was one of many special guests in attendance this evening at The Square Tallaght for the premiere of Irish film Pursuit.

There was great excitement all around the centre as many well known faces arrived for the Irish premiere at IMC Cinema. The first actor to hit the red carpet was Liam Cunningham alongside Don Wycherley and Ruth Bradley.

Members of the public queued amongst the media to catch a glimpse of the famous faces as they flocked to The Square via a fleet of ŠKODA Cars including the ŠKODA Octavia RS which is featured in the film.
