the forgotten ten
this is a documentary abut kevin barry and 9 other men who where executed during the war of independence and buried in mountjoy. as many will remember, their bodies were only removed from the jail 5 years ago.
this documentary looks at the hardship their families had to endure in order to get their bodies out of the jail. clearly, as sign of the times and shifting attitudes towards 1916-1922 in light of the government's preoccupation with the peace process.
members of the 6th btn 4th western brigade (athlone barracks) got the honour of acting as pallbearers from their original plot to the cars (other brigades were involved of course) i knew some of the lads. very proud day for them. i also remember the f*ckers in the Indo who had the gall to write sheer lies. (it was round this time i woke up to the notion of revisionists - i was only in my early teens then)

Guessing I'd say that tries to belittle it and say that the money could be spent on something better etc though I believe 20,000 or more people turned up to watch it. Now if it was a ceremony for dead british soldiers the Indounionist would be all praise for it :mad: I don't know why anyone buys that toilet paper, nice to see Sir O'Reilly in major financial trouble with it though

As part of our history special methodology lectures in the PGDE in UCD we had a guy named Stephen Tonge in yesterday giving us a talk about online history resources. This was his second visit and he gave us a huge number of online video and audio resources covering things from Russian to German to Irish history. It was easily the most useful methodology class of the year.
One of the resources was the RTÉ Archives site which seems to have an enormous selection of video and audio clips relating to the outbreak of the troubles. He said the scene from 5 October 1968 where an RUC guy, unaware of a camera on him, wallops a Civil Rights marcher was particularly infamous. They all can be found here: http://www.rte.ie/laweb/ll/ll_t11c.html
However, I cannot get the QuickTime program, which is used to play all of the clips, to work properly. I really want to check some of the stuff he was talking about. I keep getting "461 - Unsupported Transport". This happens on Chrome & Explorer. I uninstalled and reinstalled QuickTime to no avail. Would anybody know how I could solve this issue? Thanks.
