Photos: RTE STARS DON 1916 COSTUMES

New statistics tell tale of Ireland a century ago

Mirium O’Callaghan, Marty Morrissey and Joe Duffy have launched RTÉ’s Reflecting The Rising, a massive city-wide series of events to take place in Dublin this Easter.

The presenters took part in a special photoshoot to reflect the time period to launch the event, as this bank holiday Easter Monday, Dublin city centre, north and south, will be transformed by “the biggest public history and cultural event ever staged in Ireland”, as the public are invited to re-imagine Dublin and Ireland of 100 years ago.

It is a free family event that will take place in Dublin city from 11-6 on Monday March 28.

Events range from talks and exhibitions, live music and theatrical performances, special films, interactive activities and family entertainment as RTÉ and Ireland 2016 seek to capture the sights, sounds and stories of Ireland’s shared past.
