1916 Easter Rising exhibition
Following the six day Rising, both civilians and those who participated in the fight for independence were laid to rest at Glasnevin Cemetery, approximately 3km from the city centre. As part of their exhibition opening 10 March, the Glasnevin Trust is collating information on the 485 people who lost their lives during the Rising. If you have a relative who was killed in the Easter Rising, the Glasnevin Trust invites you to share their story here. Meanwhile on Mondays and Sundays, join the Revolutionary Tour and visit the graves of those who strove for Irish independence over the years, including politician Charles Stewart Parnell, Maude Gonne MacBride, Daniel O'Connell, Éamon DeValera and Michael Collins. Don’t miss the re-enactment of Padraig Pearse’s rousing graveside oration which occurred in the lead up to Easter Week 1916, at the grave of Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa every day from March through to December.
