Eat the Peach (1986)
Eat the Peach
Eat the Peach is a 1986 Irish comedy film, directed by Peter Ormrod. The title derives from the T. S. Eliot poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. It was written by Peter Ormrod with John Kelleher.
Eat The Peach was filmed on location in the Bog of Allen, County Kildare, and in Counties Dublin, Meath and Wicklow, Ireland. The site in Dublin was at Newcastle, County Dublin. Motorcycle stunts were performed by riders from Messhams Wall Of Death.
The music was written by Dónal Lunny and centres around the song co-written with Paul Brady - "Eat The Peach" from his solo album Primitive Dance. Paul Brady performs the song as the credits roll. The soundtrack also includes uilleann pipes throughout the film. These were likely provided by Davy Spillane, who played on the album track.
