Event description

Description

Paddy Cullivan of Callan’s Kicks, The Late Late Show, Leviathan and Kilkenomics brings you an audiovisual spectacular a century after the Easter Rising. Using Satire, Imagery, Historical Insight and Song - Paddy reveals the 10 strangest things (and Darkest Secrets) that happened during our Rising, Revolution and Counter-Revolution (Civil War). He also draws parallels with those events’ effects on modern Ireland in a story that unfolds like an addictive whodunnit….

How did the lawyer who prosecuted the 1916 leaders end up in one of the highest positions in the Free State? Why were 280,000 women denied the vital Treaty Election Vote of 1922? What made 2 million Irish People turn from hating 1916 to supporting the War of Independence? What dark secret made Michael Collins sign the Treaty, and why is his assassination even stranger and more covered-up than JFK’s? All these questions and more will be dealt with 'The 10 Dark Secrets of the Irish Revolution'...
