On the 24th April 1916, (Easter Monday) a small group of people took over the General Post Office on Sackville Street (Now O’Connell Street) in Dublin and read out the Proclamation of the Irish Republic.
This year, we are celebrating how this Proclamation changed Ireland’s future. This Proclamation gave a guarantee of ‘religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all its citizens, and declares its resolve to pursue the happiness and prosperity of the whole nation and of all its parts, cherishing all of the children of the nation equally.’
‘Don’t forget the Bread’ by WigglyWoo Productions tells the story of four children who are sent out on an errand on Easter Monday and get more than they bargained for….
We would like to thank Tim Carey, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’ for supporting the screening of the short animated films that commemorate the historical events of 1916.
