A new film portraying the life of Enniscorthy designer Eileen Gray premiered at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival last week to much acclaim.

'The Price of Desire', starring Orla Brady as Gray, charts the life of the famous architect and furniture designer from her 30s until her death.

'Like most people I didn't know a huge amount about Gray before I started working on this project but she was such a strong Irish woman and a wonderful person to play,' said Brady.

The film is directed by Mary McGuickan.

Brooklyn star Saoirse Ronan is also due at the festival to promote her new film Lost River.
