Mo Chara: "Bobby Sands, the hunger striker from West Belfast, is a local hero in our community. Played brilliantly by Michael Fassbender. An absolute must watch."

Focusing on the 1981 hunger strikes by Republican prisoners in Northern Ireland. Bobby Sands is one of a group of prisoners who first "took to the blanket" with a "dirty protest" in pursuit of their claims for recognition as political prisoners. Sands then became the first one of the group to embark on a hunger strike that was to end in his death.
