This Irish film premiere features the grandson of The O’Rahilly, Proinsias O’Rathaille and the great grandson of James Connolly, Jim Connolly Heron, taking a tour of Dublin’s forgotten 1916 Battlefield.
Maeve O’ Leary is the Granddaughter of Thomas F. Byrne (Boer Tom), and Lucy Agnes Smyth, Cumann na mBan now living in Australia comments:
It’s an honour and a privilege as the granddaughter (and family history researcher) of two 1916 Volunteers, both garrisoned in the GPO, and advocate for my 93 year old Mum who is a living link to the events of this period, to promote this previously untold history. The campaign to preserve this sacred area – the birthplace of our nation – is about promoting the legacy of these heroic men, women and children for future generations of Irish people the world over.See: Stories from 1916
