In this HeritageTalk, join Auckland Libraries' Raewynn Robertson to hear about "A doomed battle: the Easter Rising, Dublin, Ireland - 24-29 April 1916".

The Easter Rising was a doomed battle for Irish independence from Britain. This battle which lasted six days over Easter 1916, was planned by the Military Council of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB) and had support from the Irish Citizens Army (ICA) and other volunteers.

Although ultimately a disaster - the Volunteers were completely outnumbered ten to one by the British troops - the Easter Rising proved to be one of the decisive turning points in Irish history.
