Bandages and Bullets, a short documentary exploring the role of Cumann na mBan in the Enniscorthy Rising, was premiered on Easter Monday as part of the 1916 commemorations.

The documentary was projected on large screens in Abbey Square and Market Square on Monday morning before the parade began. It will also form part of the in the 1916 Exhibition in the Athenaeum from late April. The key contributors to the film are Gráinne Doran - County Archivist, Helen Ashdown - author of the The Last Surrender, a new book about the Rising in Wexford, and Jacqui Hynes from the Library Service's Memories of 1916 Oral History Project.

Terence has made several short films which have been broadcast on television and screened at international film festivals. He also coordinates County Wexford Youth Film Project, which is based in St. Michael's Theatre, New Ross. Three project participants assisted Terence in the making of the Cumann na mBan documentary.
