'Mná an IRA' airs on TG4
03 Jan 2012 : By Ciara Drohan
Mná an IRA
‘Mná an IRA - Dearcadh ar Leith’ a new 6 x 25 min documentary series about the active involvement of women in the IRA which is to begin air on TG4 this Thursday 5th January at 10.30pm and will air every Thursday until the 9th of February. Each episode will focus on one woman protagonist.

The programme aims to tell the unique stories of these women, their actions and what effects their actions had on the conflict in the North and South. The series started shooting last May throughout the summer in Belfast, Dublin, Derry, Tyrone, Cavan, Limerick, and Armagh.

The first programme focuses on Rose Dugdale who was born into an aristocratic English family but rejected her family’s wealth and became involved in militant politics as a young woman. Arriving in Belfast in the early 1970s she joined an IRA active service unit operating along the border. She was imprisoned in 1974 for a botched bombing attempt in Strabane and an audacious art theft at Russborough House, Co. Wicklow. After her release, she continued to be involved in left wing politics and Sinn Féin, including the H-Block protests and the concerned parent’s movement.

The series also features archive material and contributions from other observers. The documentary was produced and edited by Loopline. It was directed by Martina Durac, who also produced with Vanessa Gildea. Director of photography was Patrick Jordan and it was shot on HD format. It was edited by Genevieve Murphy and funded by TG4 and the BAI.
