About

2016 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin against British rule. Made up of organisations such as the Irish Volunteers, Cumann na mBan (League of Women) and the Irish Citizen Army, the failed Rising proved to be a seminal point in British/Irish relations and its impact on Irish history and politics reverberates to this day.

A little known aspect to the Rising is the role the Irish diaspora played in the rebellion. It is now known that over 50 men and women travelled from Liverpool to take part in the fighting during Easter week. Some of these men and women were Irish born, while many were born in Liverpool and joined local companies of the Irish Volunteers and Cumann na mban in Liverpool, from 1913 onwards, to support the implementation of Irish Home Rule. This play aims to tell the story of the volunteers from Liverpool, through drama, dance and music
