Kilcoole plans to host a festival weekend to commemorate 1916.

Tá sé i gceist féile deireadh seachtaine a chur ar siúl i gCill Chomhghaill chun comóradh a dhéanamh ar 1916.

In 1914, Kilcoole was the venue of the infamous gun-running that brought in more than 600 rifles to arm volunteers for the events leadingup to and during the rising in 1916. All the community will become involved with this festival. A summer school will explore the social impact of 1916. Luisne Spiritual Centre, Kilcoole, will be the location for reconciliation & discussion. A highlight of the festival will be a construct replica of GPO and a reenactment of Easter 1916 will take place.

The weekend will incorporate a wide range of events and activities that will showcase the life of the time. Highlights will include:

• The Bob Montieth Summer School
• Three full-scale reenactments, including the 1914 gun running
• A reconciliation forum hosted by Luisne Centre
