KILMICHAEL AMBUSH – A Story of a Century 
Colum Cronin
Thurs Dec 10 2020 

Having recently produced a film documentary entitled Kilmichael Ambush – A Story of a Century, Colum tells the story of how he and his son Shane conceived the idea and went about producing what was to become a highly successful production, achieving more than 11.5k views online in just three days. He explains how they were motivated to tackle this ‘hot potato’ subject and how they managed to do all of this under the confines of Level 5 Covid lockdown. Colum will give an overview of the ambush story as told in their documentary, expanding on certain points of the story and adding some caveats of interest along the way.
