Every Wednesday and Thursday The Herald will bring you into the heart of the 1916 Rising. We’ll examine the key events, the ordinary Dubliners caught up in the rebellion, and the lasting effect it had on the city itself.
Do you know the leafy location where the rebels inflicted the most casualties on the British forces?
Or the street where 13 unarmed civilians were shot dead?
What about the 18-year-old girl who treated casualties at the Four Courts – alongside her future husband - before leaving to stash away guns and ammunition at a safe house?
Or the five brothers who all fought at the GPO – and who all survived?
Our coverage won’t just feature the main figures, we’ll also feature the stories of everyday women and children caught up in the violence.
The Herald will also examine the effect the Rising had on politics, on culture, writing and song – examining how we remembered this pivotal event over the years.
With personal stories and top analysis, the Herald tells you the complete story of 1916.
