Storyline

The story takes place in a little Irish settlement on the coast of Ireland. Dennis Morrissey is chosen leader of the Patriots and his mother, who is rather superstitions, has an old woman tell her fortune from a tea cup. The old woman tells her that Denny has been captured by the English and put into prison, and as she sees him (in a vision) about to be hanged, she breaks the tea cup and tells no more. Father Maloney, who has entered just in time to hear part of the fortune, tries to comfort the widow, as does Eileen, Dennis' sweetheart. Later we find Ireland in rebellion. In a fight which takes place near Dennis' home, he takes refuge in his cottage, using the furniture as a barricade, trying to protect Eileen and his mother. He is captured by the English after a desperate fight, placed in prison and sentenced to death.

The action is very good
17 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

A two-reel Irish story, written by Richard V. Spencer. The action is very good, and while the situations resemble those of previous offerings along this line, the production is decidedly attractive. The characterizations and general atmosphere of the piece are excellent. The fighting scenes between the Irish laddies and the Redcoats were well staged. The escape of Dennis and his swim out to the vessel bring the story up to an exciting close, A good offering of the type. - The Moving Picture World, December 27, 1913
