Ireland 2016 is a year-long programme of activity, in which everyone is invited to participate, to

commemorate the events of the 1916 Rising, to reflect on our achievements as a democratic state over the

last 100 years and to look towards Ireland’s future.  Following a short presentation on the Ireland 2016

Centenary Programme and the draft Galway County Council 1916 Centenary Programme participants will be

invited to partake in a facilitated session to share ideas, projects and initiatives of local interest.

Galway County Council will be announcing details of their new Community Commemorative grant scheme to

encourage community participation in the commemorations of the 1916 Rising and application forms and

guidelines will be available at these workshops.

Galway County Council would like to link in with the relatives of those who participated in the 1916 Rising in

the County of Galway. If you are related and would like to be kept informed of Galway County Council’s

events commemorating 1916, please complete a short form which is available on

www.galway.ie, from your local library and will also be available at the workshops.

Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend.

Thanks,

Caitriona
