Easter Rising 1916 in Dublin - Walking Tour insight into Irish History

Overview

Background: In 1916 a small band of armed insurrectionists declared Ireland a Republic.


This event is known as the Easter Rising, a violent battle which resulted in many deaths and the destruction of many parts of Dublin. Lorcan Collins, Conor Kostick (authors of The Easter Rising) and Shane MacThomais will take your group to the relevant sites of the Rebellion in Dublin, to give your group an understanding of this historic occasion which led to the formation of the Irish Republic. This is a fantastic educational tour for groups providing an amazing insight into Irish History. It is also great fun – Lorcan and his team are amazing story tellers and provide lots of local stories and “craic” mixed in with history.
