Synopsis:
Set in 1950s Dublin, John Gregson is the irrepressible James Ignatious Rooney...the hurling loving dustman. Landladies fall at his feet and it's not due to the stench of rubbish from his daily collections...Rooney is too much of a gentleman to bring his work home with him. No it's the Irish Blarney, his good looks and his dog. And don't forget the hurling, always at the hurling. Rooney teams up with Mr. Doolan (Liam Redmond) a wealthy businessman, and hurling fan, and moves to a smart part of Dublin.
Here he meets yet another widowed landlady and the cantankerous Grandpa (played brilliantly by the hilarious Barry Fitzgerald) who is always losing his teeth! Rooney falls for Maire (Muriel Pavlow) the landlady's cousin and when he is selected for the Hurling Championship Final, will he win both the Cup Final and the girl?
