A brief overview of the Easter Rising 1916

If you are coming to Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2016, there will be many talks and tours around the centenary of the Easter Rising.

Irish politics and Irish history are not the easiest to understand at the best of times, but John D. Ruddy has put together a great little video that gives you the key facts about the Easter Rising in a very digestible fashion.

He has also created an excellent video on World War One, which serves as the backdrop to the Easter Rising.

Thanks John!
