The Murder of Wolfe Tone

The incredible story of the mysterious death of Theobald Wolfe Tone, the founding father of Irish Republicanism. An audio-visual spectacular featuring hundreds of images, shocking research and incredible songs, Paddy unravels the secrets around what happened that fateful week in the Provost’s Prison in November 1798. Was Wolfe Tone’s real father the Chief Justice of Ireland – the man who tried to save him twice? If he lived for 8 days after his ‘suicide’ attempt, why was no-one allowed to visit him? Were his last letters and statements forgeries? Did his surgeon later admit it was murder? Why is there such reticence from certain quarters – to this day – to find out the truth?
