The performance will explore the lives of the men, women and children of the 1916 Rising through music, song, poetry and dance.

Léiriú amharclannaíochta a fhiosraíonn an saol fear, ban agus leanaí 1916 ó dhearcadh pearsanta trí cheol, amhráin, filíocht agus rince

This presentation remembers the men, women and children of the 1916 Rising during a performance of music and songs of the time, along with poems and stories recounting their involvement in the events leading up to and during the Rising.

Kildare women, Eva Bourke who nursed in the GPO, and Teresa Brayton who was a friend to many of the 1916 leaders, will be featured.

The tragic story of Seán Foster, a child who was killed on the first day of the Rising, will also be remembered. Unique local research will be the cornerstone of this production which aims to set local stories within the national context.

The production is produced by Mona Conroy and Owen C. Lynch, in conjunction with James Durney, historian-in-residence and Kildare Local Studies Department.

Sa léiriú seo cuimhnítear ar fir, mná agus paistí Éirí Amach 1916, le linn taibhiú ina mbeidh ceol agus amhráin na linne, maille le dánta agus scéalta ina mbeidh cur síos ar an baint a bhí acu le h-eachtraí a tharla roimh agus le linn an Éirí Amach.

Ina measc beidh mná ó Chill Dara – Eva Bourke, a bhí ina banaltra in Ard-Oifig an Phoist, agus Teresa Brayton, a bhí cáirdiúil le móran de cheannaraí 1916.

Cuimhneofar freisin ar scéal tragóideach Sheáin Foster, páiste a maraíodh ar an gcéad lá den Éirí Amach. Beidh taighde áitiúil uathúil mar chuid larnach den léiriú seo, ina bhfuil sé mar aidhm scéalta áitiúla a chur i gcomhthéacs náisiúnta.

Tá an léiriú seo á chur i bhfeidhm ag Mona Conroy agus Owen C. Lynch, ag comh-oibriú le James Durney, Staraí Cónaithe agus le Roinn Staidéir Aitiúil Chill Dara.
