  • Rebels Iwerddon 1916

    2016 marks the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland, a bloody battle which sparked the long journey towards Irish independence. Broadcasters Lyn Ebenezer and his son Dylan embark on a special journey to trace the history, where they meet some of the leading figures in the campaign for independence, including Gerry Adams. Lyn first visited Dublin in 1966, for the 50th anniversary celebrations, where he marched through the streets alongside the IRA and the Free Wales Army. The events of 1916 sparked Lyn's obsession with the Emerald Isle and its dramatic history, but the flame was truly ignited at the Fron-goch Camp near Bala North Wales. Here around 2000 rebels were imprisoned, including Michael Collins. These were the men who would return to Ireland to continue the fight which would ultimately secure Irish independence. Lyn has since become one of the world's foremost experts on the history of Fron-goch.
