Released by Element Pictures Distribution in 2007, Garage was shot in Clare and Offaly on a budget of €2 million. Written by Mark O’Halloran and directed by Lenny Abrahamson, the team behind Adam and Paul, Garage was their second feature and received much critical acclaim both at home and abroad.

Set against the backdrop of the transformation of a small Irish town, Garage is the startling hypnotic and austerely funny story of Josie's search for acceptance and of what happens when the little niche he has managed to carve out for himself comes under threat.

Set in contemporary Ireland, Conspiracy of Silence begins with two seemingly unrelated events: the suicide of beloved and well-respected Father Frank Sweeney, and the expulsion of a young seminary student, Daniel McLaughlin. When local investigative reporter, David Foley, aggressively pursues the two stories, he begins to uncover a shocking secret that links both incidents and leads directly to the highest ranks of the Catholic Church.
