Under the guidance of the Jackie Clarke Collection’s Community and Volunteer Programme, the Collection will deliver an inspired evening of poetry, music, song and drama as part of part of National Heritage Week in Ballina. ‘The Spirits of 1916′ will be held in honour of all the people involved in the 1916 Rising on Wednesday August 24th, 2016 from 7.00 – 9.00pm. National Heritage Week takes place around Ireland from August 20th to 28th, 2016.

The evening will concentrate around the seven signatories of the 1916 Proclamation delivering to the audience compositions by Padraig Pearse, Thomas McDonagh and others associated with the movement at the time.
