THE REVOLUTIONARY DUBLIN TOUR
The Revolutionary Dublin Tour focuses on Dublin’s pivotal role in Ireland’s 20th century struggle for independence. As Ireland’s history can appear confusing and contradictory at times there is a strong emphasis on political and social context throughout the tour. For example, the 1916 Easter Rising is placed firmly within the context of the terrible tragedy of the First World War. The principle points of the foundation document of the Irish state, the 1916 Proclamation, are explained in detail. Major and lesser known buildings and places associated with the Rising and subsequent War of Independence (1919-21) and Irish Civil War (1922-23) that provide a tangible link to these momentous events of the past are visited.
