1916 Centenary Programme


The centenary of the 1916 Rising is an opportunity to remember a decisive moment in our history and those who were involved in it, and to reflect on its background and the ideals that inspired it. It is also a time to reflect on and celebrate how Ireland has changed and progressed in the intervening century. In addition, the commemoration will prompt us to look forward.

A central part of the Longford programme is the commemoration of the people from here who participated in the Easter Rising—those born in the county and those who lived here.
