The Rise Of Irish Australia

The Irish In Australia
SBS March 18, 2017

Ireland's 1916 Easter Rising helped to shape political forces in Australia at a crucial time in our own national history. In particular, the execution of the leaders of the insurrection had a profound effect on Archbishop Daniel Mannix, the man who led Australia's Catholic community. Independent documentary maker Eoin Hahessy captures the mood of the time in this new film commemorating the centenary of these powerful events.
