‘Remembering Galway 1916′

8 short documentaries

Paul Murphy

Galway City of film is delighted to present ‘Remembering Galway 1916’ – a series of 8 short documentaries about the 1916 Rising in County Galway and how we commemorated this historic event throughout 2016.

Many of the stories deal with relatives and community groups and how they have reconnected with events of 1916. One film tells the story of how a relative of Liam Mellows visits Athenry for the first time to see where Mellows planned his revolution while another tells the unknown story of Bridgid Walsh of Cumann na mBan and how she contributed to Galway’s Rising.

This project was produced by filmmaker Paul Murphy with The Heritage Council, Galway County Council and GMIT.
