Sunday 17 February 8.30pm Channel 039

The Easter Rising, 1916.  Fiercely committed Father Eoin O’Donnell is convinced that only violence will force Britain out of Ireland. He influences young, impressionable Antaine to fight the cause. But when events spiral out of control, Antaine accidentally kills his mother while running from the police. Father Eoin realises he had too much influence over the boy and runs away to Derry to hide and seek penance… Fifty years on in 1969, Antaine, now an experienced gunman, arrives in Derry, triggering Father Eoin’s guilt and the subsequent breakdown he suffered.  Antaine is in no mood for sympathy. Starring Peter Coonan, Barry Byrne & Padhraig Parkinson.
