What happens when love interferes with your dreams?


Finbar Vaughan leaves Cork in 1947 “to see the entire world.” In 1952, during leave, he meets Tina Furlong, a Wexford girl, who sweeps him off his feet.

When We Were Young is a romantic drama about the beautiful Tina and her romance with Finbar, a handsome sailor. Their romance is intense, leaving her lonely and afraid once he ships out. “If you love me, why do you sail away?” What happens when love interferes with your dreams?

Set in the 1950s, this story follows Tina and Finbar as they navigate life through its ups and downs, like an ebb tide. It is an innocent, charming and ultimately moving story told in an honest, unsentimental and powerful manner. When We Were Young is based on a true story inspired by the writer’s own family history.
