1916 Centenary Celebrations

Every single county in Ireland has a connection with the 1916 Rising. In an effort to explore these connections and stories, RTÉ, in partnership with Ireland 2016, embarked on an ambitious project to produce 32 one minute films or shorts – one for every county. RTE chose Galmoy and more specifically our school for the Kilkenny leg of their journey. 

Our video details preparations around our time capsule which was buried on school grounds and will remain unopened for another 100 years. 

The children gathered items from their time which are significant now but may not be in another century. The RTE video tells of the journey.
The films explore the individual connections with the events of 1916 in each county or a particular story around the county’s particular commemoration of Easter 1916. This initiative is dedicated to allowing each county tell its own story about how it was touched by this momentous turning point in Ireland’s history.
