They play television reporters Sinèad Teeling and Richard Hanley in this one-off special directed by Ruán Magan, marking the centenary of the momentous 32-county general election in 1918.
“This one-off special has a unique concept – it marks the centenary of the momentous 32-county general election.
Blending together mock coverage of the events, political analysis and staged vignettes, co-hosts David McCullagh and Sinéad O’Carroll are at the heart of the story, and present the show as if it was coverage of a modern general election.
They follow the reenactment as it unfolds, travelling around the country, visiting the count centres of 1918 and telling the stories of those who lived it.
Meanwhile, the studio is filled with analysts and experts, who react to the storylines as they happen, giving viewers a clear picture of that landmark event and its immediate aftermath.” - RTÉ Guide3 Dec 2018
