Irish Destiny is a 1926 film made in the Irish Free State, directed by George Dewhurst and written by Isaac Eppel to mark the tenth anniversary of the Easter Rising in April 1916. The film follows an Irish Republican Army soldier who is captured by the British. The film was considered lost for many years until in 1991 a single surviving nitrate print was located by the Irish Film Institute in the United States' Library of Congress. The institute's archive had the film transferred to safety stock and restored. Irish Destiny is the first fiction film that deals with the Irish War of Independence (1919–1921).
