I loved Rebellion & this sequel is even better! Jimmy Mahon is back and this time, 4 years after the Rising, life is grittier. Brilliant cast, with the exception of. Some artistic licence, but this doesn't matter as you are really given a sense of what people went through in the fight for independence of Ireland. I wish this would be shown on the BBC so us British can see how terribly we treated Ireland and continue to do so (BREXIT) Brian Gleeson, Simone Kirby, Paul Ritter & Aoife Duffin are absolutely superb and really help bring history to life.
