Heather Humphreys T.D., Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht launched a new publication Centenary, a book she commissioned to document the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme at home and abroad. Centenary was edited by Ronan McGreevy, Irish Times journalist and author.
Centenary documents how 1916 was remembered last year at home and abroad and includes significant commemorative events in chronological order. Each chapter includes testimonies from some of those involved in the events. The publication shows the breadth of events right across Ireland which took place to mark this pivotal moment in our history. It also includes insights into the commemoration of WW1 and in particular the Battle of the Somme. In particular it captures how the commemorative events last year really tapped into the public imagination with over 3,500 events taking place across the country and abroad.
