Shane MacGowan celebrated his new documentary 'A Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan' with a party in the Light House Cinema in Smithfield.

The film, made by Julien Temple, dives into the life of Shane MacGowan, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the Pogues, who famously combined traditional Irish music with the energy of punk rock.

The documentary features unseen archival footage from the band and his family.

Johnny Depp, former Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, and Bono all feature in the documentary.

The event was attended by actors Johnny Depp and Robert Sheehan.
