SYNOPSIS

The future of Europe hangs by a thread as fierce battles rage in the skies over southern England. Irishman Brendan Finucane, with his dreams of being a flyer, is one of the first to enlist into the Royal Air Force.

Having his baptism of fire in the Battle of Britain, Brendan proves himself to be a natural born fighter pilot. His exploits in the air rapidly gain him fame and promotion through the ranks.

It is not long before he is given command of 452 Australian Squadron. Under Brendan’s leadership they will become the stuff of legend.

THE SHAMROCK SPITFIRE chronicles the epic true story of Brendan “Paddy” Finucane, one of the most celebrated fighter aces of World War II and the youngest Wing Commander in the history of the RAF.
