What Happened In The Banshees Of Inisherin?

The movie “Banshees Of Inisherin” is considered to be a G.O.A.T. movie by Martin McDonagh. In this movie, you will explore the complicated layers of characters by admiring the knotty relationships. The main storyline of this movie is based on the breakup of a relationship. 

The movie starts by showing the images of the year 1923 {Featuring the Irish Civil War Period} reflecting the conflicts between two friends- ‘Colm Doherty’ and ‘Pandraic Suilleabhain’ via metaphor. Later in the movie, we get to see a fight between these two friends. It is shown in the movie that both of them do not have anything special to do, but they want to go to see the Irish Civil War going on near their area. They both want to enjoy it as an event.

But one day a rift occurs between the two best friends and they part ways, causing Pandraic to feel isolated. As soon as Pandraic sees his new partner – ‘Dominic Kearney’, he starts spending time with him but, Dominic is a strange man who is searching for a lover, desperately. Both shared their disappointments, shared their pain.

 Now here comes the most interesting character of the movie, ‘Siobhan Suilleabhain’ who is Padraic’s sister. She is also looking for the love of her life but never lets people know about her desperation. Now all it takes is a moment to bring together those whose life stories match each other. 

Something similar happens with Colm because he is the only person who can understand Siobhan’s pain. People see her as a very sensitive and intelligent girl, but people do not know that she is spending time hiding the pain of not being able to find a loving partner.

Despite being a popular and demanding person in his area, Colm considers himself nothing more than an outsider. He doesn’t want to live with Pandraic anymore, he wants to create his own identity and be remembered by it for years and it is completely built on the spark to fulfill this desire.

 This story continues further and the surprising thing is that in this movie the character does not die as was predicted at the beginning of the movie. If anyone dies, it is Dominic, who is found dead one morning along with his donkey.

What Happens At The End Of The Banshees of Inisherin?

People used to say that never hold grudges in life but never have misunderstandings in your life. This applies here! Why? The friendship bond here in this movie ends strategically just because they feel bored.

And what’s even more surprising is that they were so angry at each other that they were willing to hurt themselves just to stay away. Both of them part ways without saying anything to each other because they understand that their paths will never meet again and nothing will be done if they harm themselves.


In the end, we hope that you might know and read about the movie Banshees Of Inisherin has been explained, and also about its dark comedy humor. Since the movie is mind-boggling, we must suggest you have a look at this great movie to solve the latering mysteries of the characters and their life.
