Many of the actors are relations of those who were there on the day.
95% are local residents.
Film was made on location with the "Set" provided by a local farmer.
Cathal Boland who Directed the film said " The Fingal Old IRA 1916-21 Commemorative Society are really pleased to have the support of Fingal County Council along with funding from Creative Ireland.
This project came about as a reaction to COVID. We had a Community Story to tell and FCC gave us great support and encouragement.
This project is pretty unique in that's it local to this village with most of those taking part are also local to the area.
When people see this movie they will be very surprised by the professionalism, skill and ability displayed.
A great cast based on a true story told well. The time and effort put in by so many is appreciated and Fingal CoCo's support was invaluable.
