To mark the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Ambassador of Ireland, Mr. Frank Flood and his wife Ms Órla Ní Bhróithe invited the local Irish Community and friends to a reception followed by a premiere of "1916 The Irish Rebellion" about the Easter Rising on 23rd April at Artis Cinema.‌

There was a short open microphone session for guests to share what 1916 means to them. Several members of the Irish community gladly took that opportunity and talked about their personal connection.
