Auckland Libraries: A doomed battle

A doomed battle: the Easter Rising

Wednesday 11 November 12pm to 1pm Free

Join Raewynn Robertson in person or via Zoom to hear her tell us about "A doomed battle: the Easter Rising, Dublin, Ireland, 24-29 April 1916"

The Easter Rising was a doomed battle for Irish independence from Britain. This battle which lasted six days over Easter 1916, was planned by the Military Council of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB) and had support from the Irish Citizens Army (ICA) and other volunteers. Although ultimately a disaster, as the Volunteers were completely outnumbered 10 to 1 by British Troops, the Easter Rising proved to be one of the decisive turning points in Irish history. 

This event will be held in the Whare Wānanga on Level 2 of Central City Library and online via Zoom.
