Before the break of dawn on the morning of May 3rd, 1916, Patrick Pearse
was taken from his cell to the Stonebreaker's Yard in Kilmainham Jail to
face a British firing squad. Within minutes the thirty-six year old poet,
teacher, writer, Irish language activist and revolutionary was dead.
Twenty-four hours later Willie Pearse was marched into the same yard
to face the same fate as his brother.

Less than two weeks earlier the Pearse brothers had left their family
home in St Enda's, Rathfarnham for the last time. Three other teachers
from St Enda's -Plunkett, MacDonagh and Colbert -were also to die in
the Stonebreakers Yard.

On Bank Holiday Monday, May 2, 2016 - on the eve of the one hundredth
anniversary of Patrick Pearse's execution - the people of Ballinteer,
Rathfarnham, Dundrum, Sandyford and the wider South Dublin
community will come together for a '1916 People's Parade' - to
remember and celebrate the lives of the Pearse brothers and all those
who fought for Irish freedom during the 1916 Rising.

The 1916 People's Parade, which is supported by Dun Laoghaire
Rathdown Council, is a family-friendly, non-party political event that is
open to all. The parade will assemble in the carpark of St John the
Evangelist Church, Ballinteer at 2pm, before making its way along the
Grange Road to St Enda's. The parade will conclude with a
commemorative ceremony featuring poetry and song in St Enda's.

This is a genuine once in a lifetime event that cannot be missed.
Come along and bring your family and friends. Bigi linn.
