2016 marks the centenary of one of Ireland’s most significant historical events, the 1916 Easter Rising. The Rising sparked the flame which led to the creation of an independent Irish Parliament, Dáil Éireann in 1919, the War of Independence and subsequently the creation of an independent Irish State.

‘RISE’ takes an intimate look at some of the characters involved in propelling their country in to a new era.
