Citizen Keane? A film is to be made about Roy as a child
The most eagerly awaited short film of the year has just been announced.
Hands down the most intriguing figure in Irish sport, and possibly in Irish public life in general, anything related to Roy Keane, is, to use the cliche, 'box office'.
So perhaps it was only natural then that a film with Keane at its centre is to be made. This evening the Irish Film Board announced a new raft of short films had been selected to take part in their Signature scheme and one of them is about a certain young fella from Cork.
Directed by Dave Tynan, who announced the news on Twitter, the film is called Rockmount.

The blurb on the IFB website tells us the plot synopsis. Roy Keane is a small but demonic eleven-year-old in 1980s Cork. He needs to get on the starting eleven for his football club, and nothing is going to get in his way.
Sounds good, eh? No news if the man himself will make a cameo but we live in hope
