RISING

Relatives of The Rising can share their tales

As the Commemoration of 1916 gets into full swing, Portlaoise Comhaltas wishes to make contact with local relatives of the volunteers who took part in the action at Colt wood or were active elsewhere in the country during the Rising.

The first gunshot was fired in Laois, fortunately there were no fatalities and the action had little impact as events unfolded.

Anyone wishing to contact the organisers should email cceportlaoise@gmail.com or speak to any committee member.
