Documentary of the 1916 Irish Rebellion

Monday January 16 at 19:15— Irish Heritage Quebec will present the documentary 1916 The Irish Rebellion in McMahon Hall, 1145 de Salaberry in Quebec City.

Narrated by Liam Neeson, this 86 minute award-winning documentary tells the dramatic story of the events that took place in Dublin during Easter Week 1916, when a small group of Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire.

This documentary features a combination of rarely seen archival footage, new segments filmed on location worldwide, and interviews with leading international experts.

An initiative of the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame, this documentary tells the story of the 1916 Easter Rising in a comprehensive way and, for the first time, places these events in their proper historical, political and cultural context as the precursor to an independent Irish state and the disintegration of colonial empires worldwide.

Admission is free.

We hope to see many members and friends in attendance.

Parking stubs for Îlot St-Patrick will be validated.
