Paddy Cullivan of Callan’s Kicks, The Late Late Show, Leviathan and Kilkenomics brings you an audiovisual spectacular on the 100th Anniversary of the Easter Rising. Using Satire, Imagery, Historical Insight and Song – Paddy reveals the 10 strangest things (and Darkest Secrets) that happened during our Rising, Revolution and Counter-Revolution (Civil War). He also draws parallels with those events’ effects on modern Ireland, drawing out the fundamental changes that need to happen to realize the potential of the Proclamation.

How did the lawyer who prosecuted the 1916 leaders end up in one of the highest positions in the Free State? Why were 280,000 women denied the vital Treaty Election Vote of 1922? What made 2 million Irish people turn from hating 1916 to supporting the War of Independence? What dark secret made Michael Collins sign the Treaty, and why is his assassination even stranger and more covered-up than JFK’s? All these questions and more will be dealt with in the show to end all 1916 shows…
