Wrecking The Rising (Éirí Amach Amú) follows the fortunes of three Dublin men who travel back in time to 1916, just as the Easter Rising is about to break out. Their first act on arrival is to accidentally kill Pádraig Pearse. Realizing they have inadvertently ruined the Rising before it has even begun; they must somehow concoct a plan to keep history on course. But these three modern day re-enactors and self-proclaimed Rising experts find that they are altering history at every turn. Soon they are battling not only for their own futures but the entire country’s future too. The ensemble cast includes Peter Coonan (‘Love/Hate’), Owen McDonnell (‘An Klondike’), Sean T. Ó Meallaigh (‘Charlie’), Jeanne O’Connor (‘Sineater’), Enda Oates (‘Moone Boy’ and recent IFTA winner for ‘Fair City’), Eva Jane Gaffney (‘What Richard Did’) and Olga Wehrly (‘Dark Touch’).

    ""Wrecking the Rising" received a great review in The Herald today. See below for a snippet: "Despite the fantastical concept, Wrecking The Rising stays just the right side of all-out irreverence. Any budgetary constraints are overcome by Phelan's irresistibly clever and funny script (there's a great recurring gag about Joe Duffy). The three stars are marvellous too, creating characters that are immediately warm, likeable and believable. Once again TG4 has trumped the big guys and worked miracles on the paltry €6.71 it receives from every licence fee.""
