Factual error: Midway through the film, the IRA flying column successfully ambushes a motorised British patrol. Immediately afterwards, when the column's survivors are milling about on the roadway, one IRA man is shown to be armed with a German Mauser Kar 98k bolt action rifle. This is historically incorrect, as this weapon did not go into production until after Hitler's assumption of power in the 1930's - at least thirteen years after the events depicted in the film.

Continuity mistake: When Teddy has delivered Damien's letter to Sinead, he puts his cap on, gets on his motorcycle and puts his pair of goggles on the handlebar. The scene then cuts to a wide angle and the goggles are around his neck.
