Sheehy Skeffington: Pacifist

Sheehy Skeffington: Síocháiní

Sheehy Skeffington: Pacifist is the life story of Frank Sheehy Skeffington, the Downpatrick born pacifist, feminist and journalist who was cruelly executed at the start of the Easter Rising in 1916. He was an eye witness to key moments in Irish history – a friend of James Joyce, a colleague of James Connolly and the partner of Hanna Sheehy Skeffington, Ireland’s most prominent feminist activist. His pointless murder made headlines across the world, contributing to the growing demand for independence in revolutionary Ireland, while acting to obscure his role in the formation of modern Ireland.

This programme was shortlisted for Irish Language Programme of the year 2016.

Léiríonn an clár Sheehy Skeffington: Síocháiní beatha Frank Sheehy Skeffington, an síochánaí a rugadh i nDún Pádraig, feimineach agus iriseoir a daoradh chun báis go truacánta ag tús Éirí Amach na Cásca 1916. Ba finné súl é ar eochairmhóimintí i stair na hÉireann – cara le James Joyce, comhghleacaí le James Connolly agus céile Hanna Sheehy Skeffington, an gníomhaí feimineach ba mhó in Éirinn. Ba bhás beagchéillí é a spreag ceannlínte ar fud an domhain, ag cur go mór leis an ghéilleadh do neamhspleáchas in Éirinn réabhlóideach, ach ag cealú a ról i bhfíorú Éire na linne seo.

Bhí an clár seo ar an ghearrliosta do Clár Gaeilge na Bliana, Oireachtas na Meáin, 2016.
