Goodbye Darling

Baring Arms

There are many ways to commemorate Ireland's 1916 Rising. Only one of them involves bloodshed.


A Terrible Hullabaloo

An eighty-year-old Vinny reminisces on his time with the volunteers, which took him around the city as a fourteen-year-old boy during the Easter Rising. With Vinny’s Dublin brought to life by handmade miniature sets and puppetry, the film offers a uniquely charming first-hand account of the 1916 Rising.


A Father’s Letter

On the eve of his execution on May 7th 1916, Michael Mallin’s two-year-old son Joseph was brought to see him in Kilmainham Gaol. That night, his father wrote a letter that would change Joseph’s life forever.


Granite and Chalk

As Irish rebels prepared for the 1916 Easter Rising, they were watched. Two spies codenamed Granite and Chalk had infiltrated the ranks of those planning to declare an independent Irish republic. This documentary digs into declassified British intelligence files to bring the world of 1916 espionage to life. 'Granite & Chalk' tells the little-known story of how Ireland came within a hair's breadth of a completely different history.
