The name of the film project has not been released. 

The unnamed film is the latest project to be shot in the Wee County after Ablevision production "At Barlow House" finished shooting on August 21. 

Ablevision, a media production and training company for people with intellectual disabilities, has joined up with director JJ Anderson and actors Ali White and Barry John Kinsella for the project. 

Meanwhile, Irish director Aislinn Clarke's horror film "Fréwaka" began filming in Carlingford, County Louth in May. 

The film follows the story of a palliative care nurse who is haunted by the traumas of her past, affecting her relationship, career, and ability to function. 

"Moone Boy" star Clare Monnelly and IFTA-winning actress Bríd Ní Neachtain, who won the Best Actress Award at the 2023 IFTAs for her performance in "Rose and Frank", will star in the new horror film.
