The April 1991 Newsletter from The Irish National Congress.

From their wiki entry

The Irish National Congress is an Irish republican organisation formed in December 1989 to prepare for commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the 1916 Rising. Its members work on a non-party political, non-sectarian basis for a united Ireland, and human rights. They campaign on various other matters such as justice and peace issues, investigations into political deaths of nationalists and civilians in Ireland, and Irish neutrality.

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.

Easter Rising Centenary leaflet from Seán Haughey -Fianna Fail -Dublin Bay North #ge16 January 25, 2016

An impressive Easter Rising Centenary leaflet from Seán Haughey who is running for Fianna Fail in Dublin Bay North.
The leaflet contains a fascinating account of the activities of Seán Lemass during Easter week 1916. Seán Lemass being the grandfather of Seán Haughey. Aptly enough the leaflet also contains a section “Was your family involved in the events of 1916”.
