My Civil War

1 x 52"


My Civil War features selected stories and experiences from the Irish Civil War (1922/23) which have almost vanished from memory.

Presented by Eddie Hobbs the documentary will introduce three people in their twenties and thirties with a direct family link to some event of the civil war. The documentary follows their journey as they search archives and retrace steps to find out what happened to a relative during the war.

What is the modern verdict on a bloody war, fought by one-time friends and comrades, over ideals of fidelity and a Republic? My Civil War will blend history, genealogy and discovery into a moving account of our history which still has potential for controversy.
