Highlights of Liverpool’s Easter Rising Centenary Events
2016 will see a series of events across Liverpool to remember the Liverpool Irish women and men who fought in the Dublin 1916 Easter Rising. A partnership of individuals and organisations have been working on the planning of these events since 2014 under the auspices of the Liverpool Easter 1916 Commemoration Committee. The Committee has been working in partnership with St Michaels Irish Centre, the Institute of Irish Studies University of Liverpool, the Embassy of Ireland, Liverpool Museums, St Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church, Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann and others to ensure this unique aspect of Liverpool and Irish history is respectfully remembered during the coming centenary year.
