The 1916 Rising: Personalities and Perspectives

This online exhibition draws on the collections of the National Library of Ireland to tell the story of Easter week 1916, when seven Irishmen proclaimed themselves the provisional government of the Republic of Ireland and attempted to throw off British rule. While the events of the Rising are detailed, the focus of the site is on the people on all sides of the conflict - those whose words and actions set the stage as well as those who participated in the Rising.
