Master upholsterer and Limerick man Ger McNamara has a very difficult challenge ahead – to restore a rare and collapsed 18th century ‘Bellamy’ couch that other upholsters refused to take on. That’s not all Ger has on his plate. Oh no. There is also the small matter of a world record on the line. In his other life, Ger is a champion power lifter and is making a bid for his place in history.
Award-winning documentary Mighty Mac weaves together both strands of Ger’s life. In it, we follow the man himself in his furniture restorations and sporting preparations and hear from his loyal customers and admirers from across the country.
