Intro Text 

At the meeting of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council on the 6th of July 2015, the Council awarded a total of €46,020 to successful applicants under the DLR Ireland 2016 Grant Scheme, funding 18 different commemorative projects and events across the County that will mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising.


The DLR Ireland 2016 programme of events is being developed by the Council, in association with Ireland 2016 and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht for ‘Ireland 2016’, a national initiative to develop, coordinate and deliver a programme for the 2016 centenary year with local, national, and international events, based on five intersecting themes, drawing inspiration from the ideals of 1916, the Proclamation, and the events of that time.  It is a call to action to REMEMBER the events of 1916, REFLECT on the last 100 years, and RE-IMAGINE Ireland’s future.

The funding has been made available for local groups, organisations and other interested parties to play their part by developing a project, or projects, to mark this important event.
