Tuesday, April 26, will mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the Easter Rising, the beginning of the Irish War of Independence.

Students will present speeches, texts and poems focusing on the Easter Rising, including speeches from the Irish revolutionaries Padraig Pearse and James Connolly, and poems by W.B. Yeats.
