2016 marks the centenary of The Easter Rising. This uprising was one of the defining moments of the struggle for Irish independence which began on Easter Monday 1916 with the reading of the proclamation, Poblacht na h-Eireann by Pádraig Pearse.

After days of fighting on Dublin city streets, there were approximately 300 civilians casualites and the executions of sixteen rebel leaders.

Each year at Easter, we remember and honour those who took part and gave their lives during the Easter Rising, and with the launch of an extensive programme of events, 2016 brings about a massive commemoration centred in the city where it all took place, Dublin.

At 1:15pm on Easter Sunday, 1916, the first shots of the Rising were fired. This Easter Sunday, 2016, 1:15pm will herald synchronised wreath-laying ceremonies at strategic points around Dublin, starting with Dublin Castle.

Across Easter weekend many more memorial services will take place in the city, including a ceremony for all those that have died during the events of 1916 in the Garden of Remembrance, a State event for relatives of those who took part in the Rising, a nationally televised military ceremony, and a parade which will pass through the city, viewed by the President and invited guests from viewing stands lining O’Connell Street, joined by the public along the route with large screens erected for maximum visibility.

An official opening of the Easter Rising Centenary Visitor Facility at the GPO will also take place, as will a special ceremony at Liberty Hall to commemorate the contribution of the Irish Citizen Army and James Connolly, to the events of 1916.

Join the people of Dublin this Easter to reflect, remember and honour those who lost their lives in the 1916 Rising, as we look toward a brighter future which those pivotal days of rebellion shaped for the Dublin city and our country, 100 years ago this year.
