" In an infinitely classy and gracious move, Lucasfilm took out an ad in the Irish Examiner to thank the communities of Crookhaven, Goleen and the Brow Head peninsula, where parts of the upcoming Star Wars movie (Episode VIII) were shot, for putting up with them. The ad references the "tireless commitment of our Irish crew" in glowing terms, and states that "the enthusiasm and support of all the people of West Cork have made our Irish adventure one we will always treasure."
"Since it's Lucasfilm we're talking about, there's probably some financial incentive behind this gesture, but that doesn't make it any less endearing. Speaking as a Marylander who had to listen to House of Cards bitch about money for God only knows how long, it's good to see that some people in show business understand the value of appreciation. "
