General Info

The public consultation meeting on the 11th June 2015 to discuss plans for 2016 produced a wide range of ideas for celebration and commemoration which cover the seven themes of the Centenary Programme.
The overwhelming feeling from the meeting was that the Centenary is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to take stock of the nation’s journey from 1916 and that we should commemorate the sacrifices made and celebrate the achievements of the intervening years. Our youth should be given an opportunity to understand the events surrounding the foundation of the state and the Proclamation of the Republic should be explored in its original context. Children should be given the opportunity to reflect on the Proclamation and to see how the country has lived up to its ideals, principles and aspirations. An armed rising took place yet the leaders as well as being military men and women were poets, teachers and spiritual people and our celebrations should reflect this. There should be inclusiveness about the commemoration which encompasses all citizens in the Ireland of today. No political group should try to take ownership of the occasion and because of Cavan’s location there should be linkage where possible in cross border initiatives.


2016 will belong to everyone on this island and to our friends and families overseas – regardless of political or family background, or personal interpretation of our modern history.
