The 1916 Easter Rising was a watershed event and a major turning point in the history of Ireland. Irish historianJoe McGowan, who has written a book on Irish Patriot Constance Markievicz, and whose own father participated in the Rising rebellion, will guide you to some of the significant places in the west of Ireland associated with the events leading up to the Rising right up to the War of Independence. We will also visit the home of Irish Patriot Sean MacDiarmada and you will have the chance to visit Kilmainham Jail, where Sean MacDiarmada and many others were executed for their part of the rebellion and where Constance Markievicz was imprisoned.
