To Strike For Freedom: The 1916 Easter Rising
Dates: Friday, April 01, 2016 08:00am - 05:00pm

In 1916, Irish nationalist men and women rose up against England to fight for Ireland’s independence.

As Ireland prepares for the 100-year anniversary of the Easter Rising, the Villanova University Falvey Memorial Library’s Special Collections commemorates the event in this exhibit of items held in the Joseph McGarrity Collection.

To Strike For Freedom: The 1916 Easter Rising
Dates: Wednesday, April 20, 2016 08:00am - 05:00pm

In 1916, Irish nationalist men and women rose up against England to fight for Ireland’s independence. England’s centuries–long ...

To Strike For Freedom: The 1916 Easter Rising
Dates: Tuesday, April 26, 2016 08:00am - 05:00pm
