1916 Easter Rising Centennial Commemoration Event Series

Join us for this sixth annual event honoring the life histories of participants in the Irish Oral History Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area, a project of Irish-American Crossroads.

As part of our series commemorating the 1916 Easter Rising, this afternoon gathering will highlight the individual stories of oral history archive participants with a specific focus on their family stories related to the 1916 Easter Rising. Participants in this event currently include Esther O’Hara and Brian Whitty. (Other participants to be confirmed.) Bring the whole family to this wonderful event!

A special thanks to the Irish Government’s Emigrant Support Programme for its generous and ongoing support of the Irish Oral History Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area.
