A rare opportunity to see the first screening in Glasgow of the documentary portrait of Irish Easter Rising, Scottish born leader James Connolly in the award-winning RTÉ series ‘On Behalf of the Provisional Government’. The digitally-remastered film features the reminiscences of close colleagues and family of James Connolly, including his Edinburgh-born daughter, Nora, and his niece, Mary, daughter of his Edinburgh-based fellow socialist activist, elder brother, John.

We are delighted to confirm that after the film there will be a panel discussion chaired by Keith Stoddart, from the 1916 Rising Centenary Committee Scotland.

All Welcome.
