1916 Centenary Calendar 2016 - National Museum of Ireland
The Easter Rising of 1916 was pivotal to the emergence of an independent Ireland. Only supported by a minority of the Irish population, the courage and sacrifice of those who led it would in time change their nation’s destiny. The story of how less than two thousand Irish men and women bravely confronted the might of the British army in Dublin remains one of the most compelling in Irish history.
This calendar with illustrations and photographs from the collection of the National Museum of Ireland and other archival sources help recreate the events and leading personalities of the 1916 Rising.
