Where were the scenes around Hartly's filmed?
I've always felt it was probably Liverpool, since so many Harps went "over the water" to there, but after seeing that director Peter Chelsom is from Blackpool, I'm thinking WHOOPS!!
I just rechecked www.movie-locations.com, and it turns out it was shot in Dublin.
