‘The Ballad of the Crimson Warrior’ is a 30-minute film by Mike Hanrahan, inspired by and dedicated to the creative women and men of The Irish Cultural Revolution, from 1890 to 1922. They were rebels and innovators, writers and fighters who challenged a nation to reignite a flame and reconnect with its heritage. This often turbulent yet exciting period of Irish history is a fascinating study on the rebirth of a nation hidden for centuries in the shadows of colonial power. 

It is a five-part musical narrative with original music and reimagined traditional tunes to the backdrop of stunning period portraits from acclaimed Irish artist Mick O Dea. Artists featured include Mike Hanrahan on guitar and vocals with Seána Davey on Harp, Norah Constance Walsh on piano, Sive on vocals and guitar and Aldoc on whistles and percussion.

This composition was recorded and filmed by Aldoc at Áras Chrónáin and supported by Culture Ireland.

This event is a film screening of ‘The Ballad of the Crimson Warrior’ is followed by a Q&A session with composer Mike Hanrahan, renowned musicians and songwriter of Stockton’s Wing and Liz Gillis, author of 'Women of the Irish Revolution', 'Revolution in Dublin' and 'The Fall of Dublin'.
