« Go back
A young man’s doomed revolution.

On September 20th 1803, Robert Emmet was hanged and beheaded before a huge mob of his fellow Dubliners. The executioner held the severed head aloft, final proof that the young radical and his dreams of rebellion had been crushed.

Emmet the hard-nosed revolutionary was largely forgotten – popular poetry and songs celebrated instead a doomed young lover, a tragic figure to be admired and pitied in equal measure.

Two centuries after his death, ‘Emmet’ looks beyond the romantic myth at the enigmatic young man who fought to destroy the system of wealth and privilege from which he came.
