Bride Clyne Documentary
We are delighted to have Proinsias O Rahilly attending our festival and
will present a documentary about Bridie Clyne in the Community Centre.
Proinsias Ó Rathaille mother, Bridie Clyne, was involved in republican activities from about the 1916-1926 and was on the republican side of the Civil War. She was with the republican garrison in the Four Courts when it was shelled by the Free State in June 1922.
In 1923 while in Kilmainham under the alias Annie Hardwicke, she went on hunger strike along with her two friends.
She also married Niall O'Rahilly in 1940, son of The O'Rahilly.
This will be a double celebration with the second part being a plaque unveiling on Sunday.
