Hairy Jaysus is a biopic based on the events that led to the execution of Frank Sheehy Skeffington on Easter week 1916.
Sheehy-Skeffington was a pacifist, feminist, socialist and atheist who was murdered after being wrongly identified as a one of the rising leaders while trying to stop looting during the Dublin rebellion during Easter week in 1916.
We are hoping to raise €3000 to help provide you with the best audience experience.
