Anyone know of anywhere I may be able to get a copy of the series?
4 December 2006 | by frharringtonSee all my reviews

I've looked everywhere, without success. Any information grateful. Really would like to get my hands on a copy. I've read the book. It recalls the 1798 rebellion focusing on a number of locals from mayo and going into great detail describing the lands of the area and the battles/skirmishes that took place at the time.

Anyway I read the book which my dad gave me and since I discussed it with him he has not stopped talking about the drama series made in 1982 and how good it was and how much I would enjoy it and how much he would like to see it again. He saw it in the early 80s on channel 4 or RTE he cannot remember exactly. I would like to return the favour and give him a present of the TV series for Christmas but after all my searching online and in DVD stores I cannot lay my hand on it anywhere. In fact at this stage I am coming to doubt it is available in any format anywhere!

Please post a comment if you know of anywhere I may be able to find a copy. Thanking you all in advance for your help.
