Easter Rising Centenary – Dublin Fashion like 1916
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 casualties and the executions of sixteen rebel leaders.
Hundreds of free events with a historical element were planned over eight city centre public zones which were open to all.
