Ireland 1916 -2016


Outside of Ireland, many may not know the importance of 1916 and what part that year shaped what the country it is today. Ireland is country is a million tales, stories and history that falls deeper than the foundations of a fancy building.



As country struggling from independence from British rule, 1916 told a dramatic and different tale. Events constantly happening, then it was Easter Rising or the Easter Rebellion known to many. The rising organised by the Irish republicans to gain independence for Ireland. The rising began on Easter Monday, April 24th and lasted for six whole days. There was almost 500 people killed and over 2000 civilians wounded.

This year across Ireland, a country honors the events which unfolded in 1916 and the people behind it all. From events taking in the Role of Women in the Rising, and showing what part they played? What is epic in this gathering? It is showing the strength of our people and how the Irish come together in understanding?




In Dublin, on Easter weekend events take place Saturday 26th of March to Tuesday 29th, admission is free. Come and explore, breath in some history. The opening ceremony takes places Easter Rising Centenary Visitor Facility at the GPO. More information can be found at: http://www.ireland.ie/
