In 1973, Kenneth Griffith, the renowned documentary maker, gathered together a group of veterans of the Irish Rising. Almost half a century after the terrible events they lived through, this highly diverse group – branded terrorists by the British in their youth and now highly respected citizens – gave either own vivid account of what it was like to live through those turbulent times. Revealing, sometimes emotional, especially when reminiscing over old comrades who lost their lives in the struggle, and surprisingly conciliatory towards their Protestant countrymen, Curios Journey provides an important historic record for anyone interested in Irish history. It is also a powerful and heartfelt testament to nine brave men and women who risked their lives for their country.
