A beautiful calendar created to mark the 50th Anniversary of The Easter Rising. Each month is beautifully illustrated and has a piece on The Rising, the lead up to it, The War of Independence and John F Kennedy at Arbour Hill. Each date carries an anniversary of what happened on that day. A really fantastic piece of History.

Not Political but something I thought may be of interest. It’s a card delivered to each door in the Parish inviting residents to call into the local Roman Catholic church, with mass times, office hours, and contact details etc. Shows how times have changed.
Many thanks to the sender
