Ar Siúlach Scéalach inniu, cloisfimid cur síos ar Éirí Amach na Cásca ó chuid acu siúd a raibh baint acu leis.  Beidh cur síos ar an méid a thit amach i mBaile Átha Cliath, cur síos cuimsitheach ar chúrsaí i nGaillimh, agus tagairt do Chorca Dhuibhne.  Chomh maith leis sin beidh cur síos ar an Phiarsach ó dhaoine a raibh aithne acu air.  B’iad Proinsias MacAonghusa agus Breandán Ó hEithir a réitigh an chuid is mó den ábhar seo sa bhliain 1966.  Láíthriú/léiriú: Ian Lee.

On Siúlach Scéalach this week, we hear about The Easter Rising 1916 as recalled by some of those who took part.  We will hear about what happened in Dublin, as well as a detailed description of events in Galway, and a short reference to Corca Dhuibhne.  Also, Pádraig MacPiarais will be described by those who knew him.  Most of this material was recorded by Proinsias MacAonghusa and Breandán Ó hEithir in 1966.   Presented and produced by Ian Lee.
