The siege marked the first time since the War of Independence that Irish Army soldiers went into battle against another nation's army.
The cast also includes Mark Strong, Jason O'Mara and Amy Louise Wilson. Actor (and director of the award-winning Tell No One) Guillaume Canet plays the French commander who sought to thwart Quinlan and his men.
