Kevin Lehane is an Irish screenwriter and an IFTA award nominee. He is best known for the hilarious 2012 film GRABBERS. Set on a small island off the coast of Ireland, the town is invaded by bloodsucking aliens and the only way to survive is to get drunk.

The speculative script was highlighted on the Brit List 2009 and production began the following year. In 2013, he was nominated for a Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Award for Best First Feature-Length Film Screenplay and an Irish Film & Television Academy Award for Best Script.
