Dublin South Central Community Remembers 1916 Programme of Events 2016

On Tuesday 16th February, 2016 at 7 p.m. in St. Catherine’s Church, Thomas Street, an tArdmhéara Críona Ní Dhálaigh launches an extensive Dublin South Central Community Remembers programme of events to commemorate 1916.

Speaking about the programme the Lord Mayor said ““Tá sé go hiontach go bhfuil an pobal ag croí lár an chláir seo and táim ag súil go mór leis na himeachtaí ar fad. I am delighted to be here this evening to launch Dublin South Central Community Remembers Programme of Events to commemorate 1916. I would like to thank all of the local volunteer community groups and organisations who submitted details of their projects for inclusion in the events programme. The organised events recognise the importance of placing communities at the heart of the commemorations and I hope people will engage with the programme and through it reflect on the events that changed the course of our history.”

The programme includes 50 diverse projects funded by Dublin City Council and organised by local volunteer community groups. Copies of the programme will be available at the event and through local Council offices and libraries. Details are at
