The Beautiful Game - Special Pre-Premiere Charity Performance archiveHosted by The Ireland Fund of Great Britain to support the Omagh Community of Northern Ireland. Two years after the Omagh bombing, as an inquest is taking place, it is hoped that this important community project will help the town come to terms with Northern Ireland's worst atrocity. The story of The Beautiful Game begins in 1969. It is a love story, an affirmation of life, set against the backdrop of 'the troubles' in Northern Ireland. It is about a group of teenagers, members of a local soccer team, and their friends. The germ of the idea is based in truth - in 1969 there was such a football team of enormous promise, but its potential was never fully realised due to 'the troubles'. The characters in 'The Beautiful Game', however, are entirely fictional. The Beautiful Game - Special Pre-Premiere Charity Performance website.
