strumpet city
30 January 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

excellent and historicaly accurate, TV drama set in Dublin. Great performances by such fine actor's as Cyril Cussack and Donal McCann. however a young actor,Dubliner David Mangan in his first t.v. role, steals the show in his role as alterboy to the very uncharitable priest. Well worth watching. Based around the union leader James larkin, and follow's the trials and tribulations of the people of Dublin as he leads them into a general strike followed by a lockout. The church is divided as to how or if there flock should receive help as the people of Dublin get hungrier and sicker. Produced by the Irish national t.v station r.t.e, it remains to this day one of the most successful t.v drama's ever produced in Ireland. Footnote... David Mangan then went on to further success as lead guitarist with well know Dublin rock band Pictures in Grey. One of the success stories of north Dublin.
