Wicklow Harbor has been over-run by gun toting smugglers who are only too eager to pull the trigger without any heed for the safety of the public. The shooting of the Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle starring movie 'The Guard' took over the harbor this week. Explosions ring out day and night, while heavily armed thugs can be seen involved in shootouts with law enforcement agencies – though thankfully only when the cameras are rolling. 'The Guard' is a comedy thriller set in the West of Ireland. Unorthodox small-town Irish policeman Gleeson unites wilt strait-laced FBI agent Cheadle to take on a cocaine smuggling ring. Liam Cunnigham, Pat Shortt, Fionnuala Flanagan, Mark Strong, David Wilmot, Rory Keenan and Katarina Cas also star in the film.
