At Easter, we annually commemorate an event which transformed the course of Irish history - The Easter Rising of 1916.

But one man almost prevented it all from going ahead.

Historian, language scholar and later politician, Eoin MacNeill was one of the most important and influential men in Irish public life but his place in history was very much in doubt after 1916 - a Rising he opposed.

Donal Fallon joined Gavan Reilly for another episode of Hidden Histories to discuss.
