Every single county in Ireland has a connection with the 1916 Rising. In an effort to explore these connections and stories, RTÉ, in partnership with Ireland 2016, embarked on an ambitious project to produce 32 one minute films or shorts – one for every county.
The films explore the individual connections with the events of 1916 in each county or a particular story around the county’s particular commemoration of Easter 1916. This initiative is dedicated to allowing each country tell its own story about how it was touched by this momentous turning point in Ireland’s history.
The full range of country shorts will be released soon.
You can watch six stories now on the RTÉ Player
