1916 Portraits and Lives

The Royal Irish Academy's 1916 Portraits and lives exhibition is currently on view in the Embassy in Prague. The biographies selected compose an inclusively broad picture of the rising, representing the spectrum of personalities and perspectives that were involved in the event. They include not only the insurgents (and some other) killed during the rising but also some of the women who were involved as soldiers or in supporting capacities; three nationalist leaders who opposed the rising; some of the senior figures in the British administration in Ireland in 1916; members of the British army that suppressed the rising; and two historians who made considerable contributions to the scholarly debate on 1916.
 
The exhibition is open to the public and will be on display in October - November during our office hours (Monday to Friday from 9.30 - 12.30, Monday and Wednesday also from 14.30 – 16.30).
