For Ireland’s Sake tells the story of Marty O’Sullivan (Jack Clark), a young blacksmith who forges pikes to be used as weapons against English soldiers.  Spotted by British Soldiers, Marty flees and manages to evade capture thanks to the quick thinking of his sweetheart Eileen (Gene Gauntier). She cunningly hides Marty in her voluminous cloak and sends the soldiers searching in the opposite direction. Eileen continues to aid Marty throughout his quest, during which he finds himself in a series of dangerous predicaments – hiding up a chimney, swimming across a lake, hiding out in a cave, and breaking out of prison with the help of a file and a well-intentioned priest.
