Irish Destiny

A free screening of Irish Screening will take place at the Nerve Centre on June 3.

Made in Ireland in 1926 to mark the tenth anniversary of the Easter Rising, this is the first Irish feature about the events of the Irish revolution.

Irish Destiny is a love story set against the War of Independence that interweaves romantic drama with original newsreel footage of that time.

This silent film was directed by George Dewhurst and written by Dr Isaac Eppel. The beautiful restoration was carried out by the Irish Film Archive in 1991 with an original score by composer Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin performed by the RTE concert orchestra.
