Thousands of extras are currently being sought for ‘Quirke’, with an open casting day for adults taking place on Tuesday November 6, between 11am-7pm at The Mont Clare (O’Callaghan’s Hotel), 1/4 Merrion Street Lower, Dublin 2.

According to the Irish Film and Television Network (IFTN):
Gabriel Byrne will begin principal photography on BBC crime thriller ‘Quirke’ in Clancy Barracks in Dublin on November 19, IFTN can exclusively reveal.
The three-part series is currently in pre-production, with production crew moving in their lighting equipment and trailers for the three month-long shoot.
Byrne, who is currently shooting his final scenes for the History Channel mini-series ‘Vikings’ in Wicklow, will be joined by ‘Sense & Sensibility’ director John Alexander in Dublin, as well as crew from Dublin-based Tyrone Productions and Element Pictures, and the BBC Drama team, who are all co-producing.
