Letters - May & James : A Private Love in a Revolutionary Year-1916
When she died after 50 years of widowhood, we found a hidden trove of more than 90 love letters carefully tied in ribbons; they had been written in 1916 as she and her fiance approached their wedding day that June. Great historic changes were playing out in Ireland at the same time. Their world was being "changed utterly" but did they really understand it? Through their eyes we can see another side of Ireland in 1916 and follow their daily concerns and tender love as it grows. These letters are featured in RTE's major 1916 commemorative documentary "'16 Letters" to be shown Easter 2016."
