1916 Commemorations: Screening of 1916 - The Irish Rebellion

In cooperation with the Ireland-Japan Chamber of Commerce, the Notre Dame Club of Japan and Sophia University, Tokyo, the Embassy of Ireland is pleased to announce a screening of "1916 - The Irish Rebellion" 歴史ドキュメンタリー映画『1916年イースター蜂起』の上映会

1916 - The Irish Rebellion" is a new documentary made by Notre Dame University's Keogh-Naughton Institute of Irish Studies."On Easter Monday 1916, a small group of Irish rebels—including poets, teachers, actors and workers—took on the might of the British Empire.  Although defeated militarily, the men and women of the Easter Rising would soon win a moral victory—with their actions leading to the creation of an independent Irish state and contributing to the eventual disintegration of the British empire. They have inspired countless freedom struggles throughout the world—from Ireland to India."
