Tim Fanning tells the story of one of the ugliest sectarian episodes to occur in the Republic.

In 1957, Sheila Cloney, Protestant wife of a Catholic farmer, fled from her home near the Wexford village of Fethard-on-Sea with her young daughters after refusing to bow to the demands of the local Catholic clergy to educate them as Catholics.

In response, the priests launched a boycott of Fethard's Protestant shopkeepers and farmers. The Fethard-on-Sea Boycott subject of the feature film, A Love Divided became a national scandal, prompting intervention by Taoiseach, Éamon de Valera. Tim Fanning tells the story of one of the ugliest sectarian episodes to occur in the Republic.
