This photograph Is a production still from the 1966 documentary ‘An Tine Bheo’. A copy of the image was used in the commemorative 1916 booklet ‘Cuimhneachan 1916-1966’.

‘An Tine Bheo’ was a documentary by Louis Marcus about the 1916 Rising. The documentary was released on the Golden Jubilee of the Rising in 1966 and features a score composed by Seán Ó Riada. The documentary can be viewed here:

    An Tine Bheo also comes with Mise Eire, the DVD. Well worth buying. Gael Linn put it out a few years ago. You get the Mise Eire documentary, An Tine Bheo, plus a short film on the making of Mise Eire, which is quite fascinating (especially for film/documentary-making buffs).

    Gael Linn also put out on DVD the follow-up to Mise Eire, Saoirse.

    I think there was to be a part three but it either never got made or it got shelved. Saoirse goes up to the start of the civil war.
