About this Exhibition

In the 1950s and the 1960s RTÉ radio and television recorded interviews with participants in the Easter Rising of 1916 and the War of Independence. In the lead up the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising RTÉ Archives will make content related to the events of 1916 available in this online exhibition.

Presented here is the 1956 radio series compiled and presented by Desmond Ryan 'They Remember 1916' and five interviews recorded for television under the working title of 'The Survivors' although they were never broadcast.     

The accompanying photograph shows the General Post Office (GPO) undergoing reconstruction following the 1916 Rising.
