A talk by Dr Caoimhe Nic Dháibhéid on the children of the leaders of the Easter Rising.

Caint leis an Dr Caoimhe Ní Dháibhéid maidir le leanaí cheannairí Éirí Amach na Cásca.

Dr Caoimhe Nic Dháibhéid will give a talk on the children of the Easter Rising leaders as part of this year’s Dublin: One City, One Book festival. In this talk, Caoimhe looks at the personal stories behind the familiar narrative of 1916, and the effects of the events on family life.

This free event takes place at 6.30pm and booking is not necessary.

Dublin: One City, One Book is an award-winning Dublin City Council initiative, led by Dublin City Public Libraries, which encourages everyone to read a book connected with the capital city during the month of April every year. This year's book choice is Fallen by Lia Mills, which tells the story of Dubliners against the backdrop of the dramatic events of Easter Week 1916.

The National Library is a Dublin: One City, One Book partner and hosts two lectures as part of this year’s festival.

The full programme for this year’s festival is available here

Déanfaidh an Dr Caoimhe Ní Dháibhéid caint maidir le leanaí cheannairí Éirí Amach na Cásca mar chuid den fhéile Baile Átha Cliath: Cathair Amháin, Leabhar Amháin. Sa chaint seo, féachann Caoimhe ar na scéalta pearsanta taobh thiar den insint choitianta ar 1916, agus ar thionchair na n-imeachtaí ar shaol an teaghlaigh.

Imeacht saor in aisce atá anseo agus ní gá áirithint a dhéanamh.

Tionscnamh de chuid Chomhairle Cathrach Bhaile Átha Cliath, arna threorú ag Leabharlanna Poiblí Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath a bhfuil gradam buaite aige é Baile Átha Cliath: Cathair Amháin, Leabhar Amháin, a spreagann gach duine chun leabhar a bhaineann leis an bpríomhchathair a léamh i rith mhí Aibreáin gach bliain. Is é rogha na mbliana seo Fallen le Lia Mills, ina n-insítear scéal mhuintir Bhaile Átha Cliath i gcoinne chúlra imeachtaí drámata Sheachtain na Cásca 1916.

Tá an Leabharlann Náisiúnta ina comhpháirtí le Baile Átha Cliath: Cathair Amháin, Leabhar Amháin agus óstálfaidh siad dhá léacht mar chuid d’fhéile na bliana seo.
