The 1916 Rising is a pivotal turning point in Irish history, setting in train a series of events which culminated in Irish independence in 1921.
The reasons for the Rising, its effects and aftermath have been much studied and debated by historians. Given its significance in 20th century Irish history and the fact that the centenary is just five years away, it remains a subject that is important to know about.
The Renmore History Society will host a talk on the Rising on Thursday March 3 at 8pm in the Renmore Barracks. The talk, entitled Rebellion! - The 1916 Easter Rising, will be given by local historian Willie Henry.
In this talk he draws from books, newspaper articles, and documentaries, to provide a comprehensive overview of the rebellion.
Admission is €5. Places are limited and must be booked in advance through www.renmorehistory.ie and 085 - 7298831.
