Penance

Status: Completed

Aithrí/Penance tells the story of a young firebrand priest – Father Eoin O’ Donnell, who uses his influence over his parishioners, and in particular a teenage boy called Antaine, to promote violence against the British in the lead-up to the 1916 Rising. They meet again in Derry~Londonderry in 1969 where both men are forced to re-examine their shared past and the deadly events that have been set in motion as a result.
