Description   A scene from the Telefís Éireann (RTÉ Television) play 'The School on the Green', photographed for the RTV (RTÉ) Guide during studio filming in early 1966. From left to right; Paul Murphy as Eamonn, Sinéad Cusack as Rose Cartwright, Emmet Bergin as Mick and Cathleen Delany as Reverend Mother. 'The School on the Green' was the third of four specially commissioned plays set in the years leading up to Easter 1916, made to mark the 50th anniversary of the Rising. All four were written by Bryan MacMahon and were aimed at young people - children featured in prominent roles.

'The School on the Green' was broadcast on 17 April 1966. The Guide published an article by Bryan MacMahon on his memories of 1916, and his experience of writing some of the scripts for RTÉ Television and Radio that commemorated it, on 8 April 1966. A Guide article previewing all four plays was published on 1 April 1966.
