Connolly film for 2007 release

Connolly: More than just an Irish Rebel.

Tom in the comments remiinds me about the impending release of a film about James Connolly.

It's pencilled in for the spring.

There's also a good fictional account of the Irish Citizens Army in Roddy Doyle's excellent 'A Star Called Henry'. Yes, that Roddy Doyle.

If, like me, you read his Barrytown books (The Committments / Snapper / Van) and you resolved never to read anything else of his, I urge you to revise that view. 'A Star Called Henry' is a very lovely novel in so many ways.
