Did anyone ever tell you what it was really like for ordinary people during the Easter Rising? What was happening on their local streets in Dublin? What were they doing at the time when it all started? Were they scared to go out and get their messages?
We’re gathering stories handed down to us from the generation that lived through the Easter Rising, so we can collect them in our War Chest to keep safely for the future.
We especially relish all those personal details, serious or humorous, that make big historical moments come alive – if you know any, come on over and tell us about them – or if you don’t, how about sitting down with the older generation and asking? You might be surprised what they can tell you.
