In April 1916, the Easter Rising broke out in Dublin.

History remembers it as Irish rebels against English soldiers, but the truth is more complicated. 

Forty-one Irishmen in the British army died in action during the Rising, 106 were wounded. These men became a forgotten part of their country's history.

Neil Richardson explores the stories behind these forgotten soldiers.

This event is organised by Libraries NI.
