This year (2016), Ireland will be celebrating the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising which is a pivotal point in the history of Ireland and our move towards independence.

There will be many events throughout the year to celebrate the anniversary, obviously with a particular focus on events around Easter time and the Spring.

If you go to dublinrising.withgoogle.com you will be given a tour of all the important locations in Dublin during the Rising as Colin Farrell explains what happened at each location 100 years ago.

If you’d like to know more about this important political period in Irish history from the comfort of your own chair, have a look at this extraordinarily well put together tour.
