“IRISHMEN AND IRISHWOMEN:
In the name of God and of the dead generations from which she receives her old tradition of nationhood, Ireland, through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom.”
-The Proclamation (24th April 1916, Easter Monday.)
Come join us to watch this award-winning documentary where Liam Neeson comprehensively narrates the dramatic path Irish revolutionaries walked
