The Mighty Celt (2005)

Film details


Young Donal lives alone with his mother in Belfast. After school he works for Good Joe, a local greyhound trainer, and does a deal with him that if he can train the greyhound The Mighty Celt to win three races in a row then it is his. The reappearance of O back in the neighbourhood has an affect on both Donal and his mother, as the latter reveals that O is his father. Donal and O become close and O prevents Donal from shooting Good Joe when the latter cheats at the greyhound race and reneges on his deal with Donal.
