2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the Easter Uprising. Irish men and women around the world are participating in Centenary Events that mark this pivotal period in Ireland's history.

Lecture/Video at Maine Irish Heritage Center


Professor Michael Connolly will present a lecture titled "Irish Labor and the Easter 1916 Rebellion and Its' Aftermath." Connolly, who teaches at Saint Joseph's College, will cover the Irish Labour Party and the collaboration between James Connolly and Jim Larkin. Of particular interest will be the Dublin Lockout of 1913 and the formation of the Irish Citizen Army, with a particular focus on James Connolly's role in the Rising. He will also talk about the role of labour in the 1917 Anti-Conscription movement and the fate of the Irish Trade Union Congress in the aftermath of 1916. A brief Q&A will follow and then we will view an episode of the documentary series "1916 Seachtar Na Casca" that focuses on one of the major figures  of the Easter Uprising, James Connolly.

Fibin presents "Pearse in Pictures" at MIHC


Written and performed by journalist Harry McGee, and his brother Dara McGee, who performs the live art throughout the show, "Pearse in Pictures" is a striking re-imagining of Ireland's 1916 Easter Rising. The insurrection, led by a small group of idealists, resulted in a heavy defeat with all leaders executed. However, it was the spark that lit the bonfire that culminated in an independent Ireland. The performance focuses on five leading figures of the Rising with a dramatic unexpected twist at the end. Fibin is a theater group from Inverin County Galway Ireland that was formed in 2003 and has performed over 30 productions mostly in Ireland. With support from Culture Ireland.
