      • Historical Reference

        The killing of the Feeney family is directly based on the murder of the McMahon family. According to records, on the 23rd March 1922 at about 1 a.m. uniformed police broke into the McMahon residence and forced all the males in the house to line up.

        Owen McMahon and his 5 sons, along with a boarder Ed McKinney were then opened fire on. As in this episode where one of the Fenney's survived along with Ernie, one of the McMahon sons, John (aged 11) also managed to survive.

      • Easter Rising:
        While the Easter Rising occurred on Easter Monday in April 1916, for the most part, as in this episode, the men didn't return home from the prisons until December 1916.

        The success of the Easter Rising saw Northern Ireland declared a Republic seperate from British rule.
