To commemorate this year’s 1916 Easter Rising anniversary, Glasnevin Museum presents The Story of 1916.
Glasnevin Cemetery is the burial place of over 1.2 million people from all walks of life. Among them are sporting legends, writers, musicians, artists, revolutionary leaders and political giants, all of whom shaped Ireland’s past and present.
Ninety-seven years ago in Dublin, seven visionaries led a small army of Irish men and women in a revolutionary enterprise. Their vision was that Ireland might be free. This dream was an age-old one and was at first half-formed and rough shaped but became clearly defined down through the years. The United Irishmen gave it substance; Wolfe Tone delineated it, Emmet, the Young Irelanders and the Fenians strove to achieve it.
The battle of Easter 1916 raged for six days and resulted in the destruction of many parts of Dublin city. Many who participated in Ireland’s fight for independence were laid to rest here at Glasnevin Cemetery.
