The 1916 Rising Centenary Committee (Scotland) and the Pádraig Pearse Branch of Conradh na Gaeilge have come together to organise screenings of the acclaimed Seachtar na Cásca historical documentary series, in the lead up to the centenary of the Rising.

This series, produced by Abú Media, is narrated by Brendan Gleeson and features dramatic reconstructions of key events. Each film in the series examines the life of one of the seven men who were the signatories of the 1916 Easter Proclamation. The films are in Irish (with subtitles) and English.

This is an ideal opportunity to learn about the seven leaders who were executed for their part in Easter Rising. Find out what brought them on the road to revolution and why it is so important to keep their memories alive.

The fifth film in the series is about Seán Mac Diarmada – one of the founders of the Irish Volunteers and undoubtedly a key figure during the Rising.

Admission to the screenings is free and will be followed by discussion/related material.
