Description   Sheelagh Cullen as Elizabeth O'Farrell and Eoin Ó Súilleabháin as Patrick Pearse, approach a British Army barricade in a scene from the Telefís Éireann (RTÉ Television) drama series 'Insurrection', during location filming on Little Mary Street, Dublin city, in early 1966. The actors/extras playing British soldiers may be members of the Eastern Command of the Irish Army. The scene depicts the surrender of rebels/insurgents on Moore Street in 1916. Mike Nolan's premises at number 25 and J Gaugh and Sons at number 24 are both visible. This episode was first broadcast on 16 April 1966.

'Insurrection' was an eight-part dramatised reconstruction of the events of Easter Week 1916, shown to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The series was shown on eight consecutive nights on Telefís Éireann from 10-17 April 1966. The RTV (RTÉ) Guide extensively previewed the series in a special anniversary edition published on 8 April 1966.
