A film is being screened in Kilkenny today on the civil war executions.
“Dear Mother”, a film written and directed by Kevin Hughes is being shown in the Homerule Club from 7pm as well as a talk by Larry Scanlon called “Forgetting To Remember”.
Larry, who’s part of the Kilkenny Historical Re-enactment Group explains some elements of the film,
“He applied for him and was given access to the actual cells at the barracks and theres a fim called Dera Mother. Thats John Murphy’s letter that Kevin has based a 24 minute long film on. Its amazing.”
