Wasted opportunity
17 January 2016 | by vesus-67105See all my reviews

"I didn't look at their CVs," It seems like he didn't bother to do a lot of things. A Finnish guy who quite obviously doesn't know much about Irish history directs a series about the most pivotal few weeks in Irish history. Makes sense, but only in Donnybrook where they have a vested interest in downplaying, trivialising and confusing the events of 1916. The old spirit of Irish rebellion scares the bejaysus out of the corrupt establishment in this country,

RTE is the mouthpiece of that establishment.The rising was brushed under the carpet by RTE like it was with the Government. Were nearly apologetic as a nation to how we fought back against the British.. It's like we're saying "Sorry about that" and come the anniversary itself people will be holding up placards saying "Careful Now" Instead of being proud for standing up for ourselves and fighting back against the Brits

Why spend so much on fiction when there is enough material to do a very accurate historical piece?….a wasted opportunity .Absolutely appalling TV; neither dramatical nor historically factual. better off watching Seachtain Na Casca on TG4 way better.
