President leads Easter Sunday Commemorations

President Higgins led a ceremony to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

The President laid a wreath outside the General Post Office, the landmark building that served as the headquarters of the 1916 rebels.

In 2016, President Higgins led a series of events commemorating the 1916 Rising. A selection of the President’s speeches during the centenary year have been published by the Government: ‘Ceiliúradh agus Comóradh Céad Bliain 1916 – 1916 Centenary Commemorations and Celebrations’ holds 35 speeches by President Higgins. They were delivered all around Ireland over a 2-year period, straddling the core centenary year of 2016 at both local and national events.

The book is available via the Government Publications Office, and for download online.
