Call Out for Cast Members of RTÉ’s 1966 Drama Series ‘Insurrection’

RTÉ would like to get in touch with cast members who appeared in the 1966 series Insurrection written by Hugh Leonard. In the case of deceased actors, their families are invited to contact us. Phone Etain on 01 2083119 or email

This is part of the \’Road to the Rising\’ project taking place on Easter Monday. RTÉ is currently trying to trace cast members of the 1966 production ‘Insurrection’ to secure their permission to screen the programme on the day.

‘Insurrection’ was an eight-part dramatised reconstruction of the events of Easter Week 1916, shown to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The series was shown on eight consecutive nights on Telefís Éireann from 10-17 April 1966. The RTV (RTÉ) Guide extensively previewed the series in a special anniversary edition published on 8 April 1966.
