1916: One Rising, many views

Venue: Courthouse

Every generation has used the Rising for its own purposes. Liam McNiffe outlines the facts of 1916, and how initial condemnation was followed by indignation. This gave way to an unrestrained triumphalism that ignored awkward realities, like women and socialists. The 1970s saw a new ‘Revisionism’, but again awkward facts ignored. What view are we getting today?
