The official release date for In The Name of the Republic is March 2013
For some the Anglo-Irish War is viewed through rose tinted glasses, a heroic struggle against an Imperialist monster and the Civil War a brave and honourable attempt to disentangle the country from an ill judged Treaty that did not deliver on the nation’s aspirations. But there is a much darker story to be told of the often innocent men shot as spies and made to disappear. In The Name of the Republic is a two part documentary series following eminent Historian, Professor EunanO’Halpin as he explores this dark side of Irish republicanism. At the spine of the story is a dig at one of the burial sites which Tile Films have exclusive access to.
A Tile Films production in association with the Broadcast Authority of Ireland for TV3
