‘A Terrible Beauty’ is a 90-minute feature docudrama, which takes a unique look at the events of Easter Week 1916 in Dublin. Focusing on the ferocious Battle of Mount Street Bridge and the engagements around Ned Daly’s Four Courts garrison, this is the first film to tell the story from three different perspectives, showing the human cost of the fighting on all sides.

First hand accounts tell the little-known stories of the ‘ordinary’ people involved in the Rising; Irish Volunteers, British Soldiers and the innocent civilians caught in the middle. This gives the viewer an up close and personal view of the often brutal and bloody fight which affected the lives of the men and women caught up in the chaos.

This screening is FREE but places are extremely limited so please book early.


This screening is part of the 1916 Commemoration Film project supported by Kerry County Council in association with Kerry Film Festival.
