RTÉ Reflecting the Rising, Easter Monday 28th March

What were the newspaper headlines after Easter 1916? See the inside of a 1916 drawing room, meet Lia Mills the author of Fallen the Dublin: One City One Book choice, examine the detail of an ambulance in 1916, talk to historians, browse history books, meet members of Dublin Fire Brigade in replica vintage uniforms.

All of this – and much more – will be at Smithfield Square from 11am – 6pm on Easter Monday. The popular ‘Dublin Remembers’ Learning Bus returns alongside a large mobile library and a replica vintage ambulance. Dublin City Public Libraries, Dublin Fire Brigade and Dublin UNESCO City of Literature staff will be there promoting Dublin City Council’s 1916 centenary programme and will be joined by re-enactors and historians to answer your questions on the Rising and Dublin 100 years ago.  Lia Mills, author of Fallen, the Dublin: One City One Book choice for this year, will talk about writing the book which is set in Dublin in 1915-16. This year is a special one as Dublin joins with Belfast for a Two Cities One Book festival. Bring your library card.
