Easter Rising Event

12 April 2016

Today (3 April) I will represent the Methodist church in Ireland at one of the State events to mark the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. It is a inter faith event to remember the 485 people who died during the Rising, most of whom are buried at Glasnevin Cemetery, where the event is being held.

I will be joined by Charlotte Dougherty who say prayers with other young people to look to the future of Ireland.

Also a memorial wall will be unveiled to remember all who died, alphabetically, without reference to rank or organisation.
