1916 in 1966

Commemorating the Easter Rising

Edited by: Margaret O'Callaghan, Mary E. Daly

This book explores the official 50th anniversary commemorations of the 1916 Easter Rising in the Irish Republic - how the government reinvented the message of 1916 through the jubilee celebrations; the organization of various unofficial commemorations in Northern Ireland; and the significance of these for nationalist and unionist politics in the mid-1960s. The book also examines the 1966 anniversary celebration of the Rising from the perspectives of drama, performance, youth culture, and history.
