    Default 1916 Seachtar na Cásca

    TG4 7 part series "1916 Seachtar na Cásca" started tonight. The series tells the stories behind the 7 signatories of the Proclamation. The first programme covered Thomas J. Clarke's contribution. An excellent production, the dramatic reconstructions reminded me of Ken Loach's "The Wind that Shakes the Barley". It'll be up on the TG4 player soon for those who missed it. TG4 surpassed themselves with this one, definitely worth watching.

    I thought the insights in relation to Eoin MacNeill's attempts to call off the Rising was fascinating. Bulmer Hobson was also an interesting character that heretofore I didn't know much about. These men played their part in the story of the Easter Rising and the TG4 documentary skillfully contextualised the events at the time.

    Read Marnie Hay's book about him not long ago - one of those fascinating Quakers that have been so influential in history.

    Will read that. This programme concentrated mainly on Clarke, without who's commitment and dedication I dare say, the catalyst of the Easter Rising may not have occurred at all.
