1. The way they went

The travels of the Fifth Brigade around Fingal during Easter week 1916.

A talk in Irish and English. Participation from the audience will be most welcome. We will follow the men and women of the Fifth Battalion of the Irish volunteers as they traversed Fingal during Easter Week. We will look at the places they gathered, where they slept, the places they walked and cycled, the places they fought, where they won victories and where they died. We will talk about the place names and the lore of the district. We will humbly remember all who died during these events, Volunteers, policemen and civilians.

2. Peig Sayers and Easter Week

Peig Sayers, Thomas Ashe and Alexander ‘Baby’ Gray.

A talk in Irish and English. Peig Sayers was a servant girl in Dingle during the time that R.I.C. Inspector Gray was stationed there. In her famous autobiography, “Peig”, she describes a renowned incident that Inspector Gray played a major part in during the Land War. Inspector Gray died in the Battle of Ashbourne. And Peig was from Corca Dhuibhne, the Dingle Peninsula, as was Thomas Ashe the commander of the Volunteers in the Battle of Ashbourne.

1. An turas a rugadar

Tuairisc Ghearr: Turas an Chúigiú Cathlán mórthimpeall Fine Gall le linn Seachtain na Cásca 1916

Caint i nGaeilge agus i mBéarla. An-fháilte roimh ghlacadh páirt ón lucht éisteachta agus féachana. Leanfaimid fir agus mná an Chúigiú Cathlán, Óglaigh na hÉireann, agus iad ag breith a dturais mórthimpeall Fhine Gall le linn Seachtain na Cásca. Déanfar plé ar na háiteanna a bhailigh siad iontu, a chodail siad iontu, a shiúil is a rothaigh siad, a throid siad iontu, a rug siad an bua iontu agus a fuair siad bás iontu. Déanfar plé ar na logainmneacha agus ar sheanchas an dúthaigh. Cuimhnímid go humhal ar gach éinne a fuair bás sna heachtraí sin, idir óglaigh is póilíní is gnáthdhaoine.

2. Peig Sayers agus Seachtain na Cásca

Peig Sayers, Tomás Ághas agus Alexander ‘Baby’ Gray.

Caint i nGaeilge agus i mBéarla. Bhí Peig Sayers ina chailín aimsire sa Daingean nuair a bhí an Cigire Gray ag obair sa bhaile céanna. Deineann sí cur síos ina beathaisnéis cháiliúil “Peig” ar eachtra a raibh páirt mhór ag an gCigire Gray ann sa Daingean le linn Cogadh na Talún. Fuair an Cigire Gray bás i gcath Chill Dhéagláin. Agus b’as Corca Dhuibhne do Pheig agus do Thomás Ághas, ceannfort na n-Óglach ag cath Chill Dhéagláin.
