Laochra (Heros): Sunday 24 April- GAA's 1916 Rising centenary celebration

November 8, 2018


A chairde,  As you know, the GAA is planning a special event to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising. Following the Division One and Two Allianz Football League Finals at Croke Park on Sunday April 24, we will present a show that will commemorate  the Rising, the Proclamation, the story of Gaelic Games and the GAA’s role since 1916. The show will incorporate large-scale innovative theatre, dance, song, poetry and pageantry.  We are confident that this production will enhance what is already an eagerly anticipated Allianz League Finals double header.


Our goal is to fill Croke Park for these two major finals and an event that is of major significance in terms of the GAA contribution to the commemoration of the 1916 Rising.  We need your support in ensuring that it will be staged in front of a full house in Croke Park. 


With that in mind, I will be grateful if you share this email, and the links included, with all of your clubs and other contacts. I ask you to forward this email to every club in your county today as a matter of urgency.

We need your support in spreading the word. Is Mise, Páraic Duffy, GAA Director General
