Welcome to Ringsend 1916! This website is a companion to our Remembering the Rising course, and showcases the work of adult education students at Ringsend College.
We’re curious about life in Ringsend a hundred years ago, and how the events of Easter Week affected the people who lived here. Between January and May 2016, we’ll be meeting on Friday mornings, conducting research, listening to guest speakers, visiting some of the local sites that featured in the Rising, and documenting local history and stories.
If you wish to join our class, or if you’d like to share a family story about the Rising, please email us or phone Priscilla at 01-668 4871. We’d love to hear from you!
