This digital cultural heritage application (DCHA) on the 1916 Rising is the final project of a MSc in Applied Digital Media at Griffith College Dublin. It presents a redefined story of that revolution through rarely-seen pictures and witness statements.
Easter1916.ie wishes to thank Kilmainham Gaol, the National Library of Ireland, the National Museum of Ireland and the Military Archives at Cathal Brugha Barracks for permission to reproduce some of their images from the Rising.

- Ireland in 1916
Ireland in 1916
Ireland was part of the United Kingdom in 1916. The country was ruled day-to-day by a British administration, based in Dublin.
But as Home Rule was shelved after the declaration of WWI, a new nationalism was sweeping Ireland which was both cultural and anarchic.
First came a political divide, then a revolution erupted on the heels of a literary renaissance. It would eventually pave the way for a bitterly fought for Irish Free State.Read more...
- The Rising
The Easter Rising lasted just seven anarchic days yet it is marked as one of the most tumultuous and significant events in Irish history.
Sixteen men associated with leading this revolution were executed within weeks. Hundreds were killed and thousands more arrested and interned at jails in England and Wales. The Rising left iconic buildings in Dublin’s city centre razed to the ground with British rule in Ireland in a state of irreconcilable civil and political chaos.Read more...
- The People
This section profiles the characters who set the stage for the Easter Rising. From the seven signatories of the Proclamation of Independence to the political leaders who struggled to contain a fevered nationalist revolution, we record the roles and actions of the main figures. Those at the forefront of the dramatic events of Easter week almost 100 years ago tell a remarkable story fired by passion but filled with bloodshed.
There are remarkable characters too on the fringes of the insurrection, such as the pacifist Francis Sheehy-Skeffington (pictured) who was murdered in the Dublin suburbs.Read more...
- The Places
Some fascinating buildings such as the Dublin Bread Company (pictured right) didn’t survive the Easter Rising. Others are now shopping centres and burstling office blocks.
The leaders of the insurrection had gambled on the British not using artillery in Dublin city centre, but the sight of the Helga on the Liffey with her guns trained on Liberty Hall quickly vanquished those thoughts early on Easter week, 1916. In quelling the Rising, the British forces left a fiery trail of destruction in Ireland’s capital — as damages ran into the millions as new political powers faced the daunting challenge of rebuilding a nation.Read more...
The pictures that survived the Easter Rising tell their own story of a city under siege. These galleries record what happened through the photographic evidence of institutions such as Kilmainham Gaol, the National Library of Ireland, and the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks.
Some of the pictures are rare, others never seen before — but all evoke a myriad of emotions documenting a momentous time in Irish history. The picture here, for example, shows British forces setting up a machine gun on a Dublin street as locals look on, seemingly impassive.Read more...

In the first minute of his hour long State of the Union oration, President Barack Obama summed up his theme in single sentence: "Tonight, we turn the page." The president then offered a page of history filled with the financial crisis of 2008, the recession and unemployment and deficits that followed, and the two distant and difficult wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It was a reminder of the ills that helped elevate "Anadrol 50" young Senator Obama to the Oval Office six years ago. And now, after many battles, he was willing Masteron Female Dosage to declare he had turned that page. Reasonable people will dispute whether that page has been turned, or how completely. But no one can doubt that this president, in his own mind and on his own terms, has turned a personal page. He now feels free to say that "the shadow of crisis has passed," and to take credit for it at least with those Americans willing to allow him some. Obama would not have dared make such a speech a few months ago, when the country was panicking over Ebola and transfixed by the sudden rise of the Islamic State also known as ISIS. He could not have spoken this way through much of last year, when the economic evidence was more mixed and his own approval rating was slouching toward the "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" oblivion below 40 percent. Climbing back to 50 percent, while far from a mandate, can make a president look and feel a whole lot better. So whether the country has entered a new phase, the Obama presidency most certainly has. Some of that has to do with "Anaboliset Aineet" the economy stirring to life, "Anaboliset Aineet" the jobless rate and energy prices falling and the mood of the country rising. When asked if he feels liberated these days, the president himself cites these factors in saying yes. But his new sense of assertiveness also owes much to the curious effect of losing the Senate majority in November. For the past four years, hobbled by the Is Dianabol A Testosterone loss of the House in 2010, Obama has restrained and even contorted himself to protect a slim Democratic majority in the Senate. He needed the Senate for many reasons, including to approve appointments with which he re populated the federal judiciary. Incumbent Democratic senators in Republican leaning states often complained of Obama as a burden to their re election, but worrying about their re election was at least as hobbling for Obama. Now that those seats have largely been lost, ironically enough, the White House has a freer hand. A similar dynamic is at work Oral Steroids Risks in the House, where the steady dwindling of white Southern Democrats has diminished the Democratic Caucus but also unified "buy cheap jintropin online" it. Thus those Democrats who remain are more inclined to back the president when he gives voice to his inner liberal, as in this State of the Union. The net effect is a president who seems more direct and forceful. The ease and confidence with which he rolled through this, his sixth State of the Union evoked memories of his campaign highs in 2008 and 2012. President Bill Clinton?/p>
