CROMWELL IN IRELAND is Tile Films' hugely ambitious new docudrama series exploring the great nemesis of Irish history: Oliver Cromwell.
Starring Owen Roe as Oliver Cromwell, Declan Conlon as Hugh Dubh ONeill and Catherine Walker as Elizabeth Price, Cromwell in Ireland is directed by two-time IFTA winning director Maurice Sweeney and presented by leading historian Dr Micheál Ó Siochrú.
Airing to coincide with the 350th anniversary of Cromwells death on 3rd September 1658, the series consolidates Ó Siochrús fascinating take on this crucial time in Irish history. An estimated 500,000 Irish people died from war, plague and famine during Cromwells military campaign, making it one of the greatest catastrophes ever to befall the country. But strikingly, Micheál reveals how Gods Englishman helped to lay the foundations for the modern Ireland that we know today.
