The Queen V Patrick O’Donnell tells the fascinatingly complex story of how Pádraig Ó Dónaill/Patrick O’Donnell, a man from the Donegal Gaeltacht with no overt political affiliations, came to shoot and kill one of the leading figures of the assassination squad The Invincibles - and Ireland’s most notorious informer - James Carey on a ship off the coast of South Africa in 1883. Piecing together what details we have of this Irish-speaking Donegal native, alongside the compelling story of how James Carey came to betray his Invincible comrades following their murder of high-ranking state officials in Dublin’s Phoenix Park, the film constructs a dramatic canvas upon which a most unlikely character becomes a nation’s avenging angel.
