Arbour Hill Cemetery
On Easter Monday, 1916, a group of Irish people rebelled against the British
government, in order to create an independent republic. As we know, that
rebellion was repressed after a week of violence and fights. The 14 leaders of the
insurrection were judged and executed at Kilmainham Gaol and their bodies were
brought to Arbour Hill prison, where they were buried in a corner of the yard.
Among the famous leaders were Padraig (Patrick) Pearse and James Connolly.
Composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and
directed by John McColgan, Riverdance has come a long way
since it started out as an interval act during the 1994 Eurovision
During the Middle Ages the first thing conquerors did
when they won a territory was to build a strong castle to
defend their newly acquired land. The Normans, and later
the English, when they began their gradual annexation
of Ireland from the late 12th century, were no different. Castles,
both large and small were thrown up all over Ireland with many still
existing on the Irish landscape.
