I have seen the film several times as i was an extra in it. It is a very enjoyable family film and would be enjoyed by young children in particular. The Boat scene was filmed in Killaloe and featured the CIE cruiser St.Kieran (Now operating in New Ross in Wexford as a floating restaurant)It is of great interest to locals in Ballina/Killaloe & Garrykennedy as a lot of locals were in the film.The best known actor to the locals was Desmond Perry who at the time was featuring in a weekly soap called Tolka Row. It is a simple story about a monster in the Lough similar to the Lough Ness Monster. It involves an American tourist who is out to prove that it does not exist and how local kids continue to bring the monster to life every so often.
