Description

Ned Halloran has lost both his parents - and almost his own life - to the sinking of the Titanic. Determined to keep what little he has, he returns to his homeland in Ireland and enrols at Saint Enda's school in Dublin. Saint Enda's headmaster is the renowned scholar and poet, Patrick Pearse - who is soon to gain greater fame as a rebel and patriot. Ned becomes totally involved with the growing revolution...and the sacrifices it will demand.Through Ned's eyes, "1916" examines the Irish fight for freedom - inspired by poets and schoolteachers, fuelled by a desperate desire for independence, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the backdrop of World War I. It is the story of the brave men and heroic women who, for a few unforgettable days, managed to hold out against the might of the British Empire to realize an impossible dream.
