During this decade of centenary celebrations, two monumental events happened, The Easter Rising and The Great War.

Both events evoke high emotion across the community in N. Ireland, with both main traditions looking back with reverence at the actions of the men of that generation from within their separate communities.

  • Who were the people involved?
  • What were their motivations?
  • What really happened?
  • What were the consequences of their actions?

Setting aside the Orange and Green tainted lenses ‘Front Lines’ takes you back to the time and places were these events occurred.
