Irish Destiny

An Irish film made just ten short years after the events it depicts, the believed lost and recently re-discovered and restored IRISH DESTINY charts a love story involving a middle-class IRA fighter against the background of the fight for independence. Upon its attempted release in the UK, the film was banned by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

IRISH DESTINY is a silent film with integrated accompaniment.
