Father Eoin O’Donnell (Peter Coonan) is unambiguous about the need to use violence to force Britain out of Ireland and influences a young, impressionable boy, Antaine, to fight in the 1916 Rising. Fifty years later, as ‘The Troubles’ devastates Northern Ireland, Antaine arrives in Derry as an experienced gunman. This appearance throws Eoin back to the cause of his breakdown in 1916.
