THE misadventures of feisty Dublin matriarch Agnes Brown (Brendan O’Carroll) transferred seamlessly from stage to small screen in 2011 with the birth of BBC sitcom Mrs Brown’s Boys.

Creator O’Carroll cast numerous relatives and friends in supporting roles to ensure the programme was a family affair.

Critics may not have been kind but the series, which is recorded live in front of an audience and incorporates out-takes, quickly gained an ardent following.

Now, Agnes and her crazy kin stampede onto the big screen under the watchful eye of director Ben Kellett.

Agnes proudly runs a fruit and vegetable stall in Moore Street Market, continuing a tradition that has been passed down in her family for generations.

Her plans to pass the stall to daughter Cathy (Jennifer Gibney) look set to be thwarted by a dastardly developer planning to bulldoze the market.

Aided by Cathy as well as next-door neighbour Winnie (Eilish O’Carroll) and sons Mark (Pat Shields), Rory (Rory Cowan) and Dermot (Paddy Houlihan), Agnes resolves to take on the Irish establishment and give it a good spanking.
