Watch four Irish-language programmes on RTÉ 1 as some fascinating stories are explored. Abbey actor and idealist Arthur Shields, who participated in the Rising, was interned; his subsequent exclusion fostering a deep disillusionment.

Déantar cíoradh ar scéalta spéisiúla i gceithre cinn de chláracha Gaeilge ar RTÉ 1. Aisteoir in Amharclann na Mainistreach agus fear idéalachais a bhí in Arthur Shields a ghlac páirt san éirí amach, a cuireadh i ngéibheann agus d’airigh díomá agus díbirt ina dhiaidh sin.

Shields then went to Hollywood, never again returning to the state he fought to found. But why?

Discover the role the Capuchin Order played in the rebellion, along with the official stance taken by the Catholic Church on events in the newly-forming Ireland.

Knight of the Realm, humanitarian and anti-Imperialist Roger Casement was also motivated by disenchantment, disgusted with the Empire. How did he fit in with “the rebels” and what did he bring to the revolutionary movement before being hanged by the British? Find out what we can learn from the 1966 pre-Troubles National Essay Competition. See how the rebellion has been commemorated. And learn how, one hundred years on, we continue to deliver on the expectations of the Proclamation.

Chuaigh sé go Hollywood. Cén fáth nár fhill sé riamh ar an stát ar chuidigh sé lena bhunú? Cén bhaint a bhí ag ord na gCaipisíneach leis an éirí amach, agus cén seasamh oifigiúil ina leith a bhí ag an Eaglais Chaitliceach?

Ridire de chuid na Ríochta, fear daonchairdis agus fear a bhí in aghaidh impiriúlachais; an díomá agus an déistin a chuir an Impireacht air an spreagadh a bhí ag Ruairí Mac Easmuinn. Cé mar a tharraing seisean le “lucht an éirí amach” agus cé mar a chuir sé le gluaiseacht na réabhlóide go dtí gur chroch lucht na Breataine é? Agus cén chomhairle atá le baint againn as an gComórtas Náisiúnta Aistí 1966, sular tharla na Trioblóidí? Conas a rinneadh ceiliúradh ar an éirí amach agus cé mar a cruthaíodh maidir lena raibh súil leis ón bhforógra a thabhairt i gcrích, an tráth sin agus sa lá atá inniu ann, leathchéad bliain níos faide anall?
