Cú Chulainn and 1916

Sources say that Paul Bolger’s Hound and Will Sliney’s Celtic Warrior will be featured on RTÉ’s A Terrible Beauty : Culture and Revolution in Ireland which will on RTÉ 1 this Tuesday at 10.15pm. The programme explores the role artists played in reimagining Ireland at the end of the Nineteenth Century and how their work may have influenced the events that led to the 1916 Easter Rising. Apparently, Cú Chulainn played a role in this. If you can’t catch it on Tuesday, it’ll be on the RTÉ Player after.
