The period from 1912 to 1922 was one of the most eventful in Ireland’s history.
The Government of Ireland’s Decade of Centenaries programme (1912-1922) aims to commemorate, in an inclusive and respectful way, each step that Ireland took during that period.
Ireland 2016 is the Government of Ireland’s national and international program of events to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.
The 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising will have particular resonance in the United States.
The centrepiece of the commemorative events in the USA will be a three-week Irish arts festival from 16 May to 5 June 2016 at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.
