The Easter Rising was a rebellion against British rule in Ireland that took place in the capital city, Dublin. It began on April 24, 1916, which was the day after Easter that year, and lasted five days. In the end, the rebels were beaten. At first, the Easter Rising had little support in Ireland. After its leaders were executed, though, people began to respect what they had tried to do. The rising came to be admired, and its leaders became heroes. Well done to Fourth, Forth and Sixth Class who have been learning all about the 1916 Rising. The children made constructions of prominent buildings during the Rising, drew portraits of the leaders and wrote newspaper articles to describe the detail of what happened during that faithful week in Irish history!! Great work from everyone involved!!
