The Hanged Man – RTE Prime Time – 11 min (2014), Barry Cummins

This documentary about a Tipperary farmhand Harry Gleeson who was hanged in 1941 originally aired as a Prime Time segment on RTE but was updated and expanded after Harry Gleeson was given the first posthumous pardon the history of the Irish State in January 2015. His wrongful execution has haunted the large extended Gleeson family; Harry was one of 12 children and his oldest sister lived to be 106 and died in 2000 hoping to see his name cleared, but never did.
