Ireland 2016 is the State Centenary Programme to remember 1916, to reflect on the Republic one hundred years on, and to re-imagine our future.
It is a once in a century invitation to people of all ages, at home and overseas, to participate in a diverse range of historical, cultural and artistic activities, all designed to facilitate reflection, commemoration, celebration, debate and analysis, and an active re-imagining of our future.
The Support Your Local campaign have produced beer mats, postcards and posters for you to download and display. Posters specific to each county are also available - please contact Bart Storan firstname.lastname@example.org
The Minister for Tourism, Transport and Sport, Paschal Donohoe TD, together with Minister of State, Michael Ring TD have officially launched Ireland’s Ancient East, Fáilte Ireland’s latest tourism initiative which will build on the wealth of historical and cultural assets in the east and south of Ireland.
The Wild Atlantic Way will be Ireland’s first long-distance driving route, stretching from the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork, offering future visitors an opportunity to truly discover the west coast. The 2,500km final route consisting of the main spine of the Wild Atlantic Way, was finalised following a comprehensive public consultation process and 156 strategically placed discovery points have been identified along the way. A series of looped itineraries off the spine are also planned to further develop the experience for visitors.
