Clonfin, a documentary film about the Clonfin ambush of 1921, will be screened at Edgeworthstown Community Library on Wednesday, September 21 at 7.30pm.

The documentary was produced by local company Harp Media, founded and owned by Robert Higgins and Patrick McGivney.


It was commissioned by Longford County Library, Heritage and Archives Services, part of Longford County Council.


It is a Decade of Centenaries project.
The documentary tells the story of the Clonfin ambush of 1921.
This is done through a combination of interviews with historians and relatives of those, archival footage and dramatic reconstructions.


Professor Marie Coleman of Queen’s University Belfast, an expert on County Longford in the revolutionary period, was the historical advisor on the project.
Dr Mel Farrell (Royal Irish Academy) and Professor Diarmaid Ferriter (UCD) were also contributors to the project.
