Ireland 2016 is a year-long programme of activity, in which everyone is invited to participate, to commemorate the events of the 1916 Rising, to reflect on our achievements as a democratic state over the last 100 years and to look towards Ireland’s future.
Fingal County Council has established a 2016 Commemoration Steering Committee to develop a programme of events to mark the centenary of 1916 in Fingal. The people of Fingal played a unique and significant role in the 1916 Rising and the 2016 Centenary Programme will commemorate and celebrate their important contribution.
Over the coming weeks a series of Public Information sessions will be undertaken in the Dublin 15 and Swords area at which the Draft Fingal 2016 Centenary Programme and the 2016 Centenary Funding Scheme will be presented. Invitations to attend will be issued to all local community groups and individuals who wish to participate.
If you live in Fingal and are interested either as an individual or as part of a Local Community Group we would encourage you or a member of your group to get involved. An invitation is attached detailing the dates and times, please note we need your R.S.V.P. by 29th April, 2015.
