 Commemorating 1916

We're in the run-up to the 100th Anniversary Celebrations or Commemorations of the Easter Rising of 1916, and we will be hearing of events everywhere.

We do not intend to become a listing place for all these - they will be promoted elsewhere - but we certainly will give mention to any that are occurring in the Kilmainham/Inchicore area.

The first such item we want to mention is, as it were, a little previous for it was only to mark the 99th anniversary of the executions after the rising, executions which had such a major impact on Irish and British history.

This was a unique event which remembers four brave men, each with a special connection to the area. it was, despite the heavy rain, a moving yet uplifting occasion, and a great opportunity for us all to get together afterwards in the excellent Patriots' Inn, which does so much to support local events and initiatives.

The message on the wreath laid by President O'Higgins on behalf of the people of Ireland at the General Post Office Dublin,
Easter Sunday 2015:

"In fond memory of those who took part, who were killed and who were injured during the Easter Rising 1916".
