The Easter Rising took place 100 years ago at the end of April 1916. In this podcast, Mark talks with Susan Schreibman and Neale Rooney of the Letters 1916 project. We also have a letter from John Adams’ sister Jeannie referencing the Rising from her home in Holywood, Co. Down.
This podcast tells the story of John Adams’ war through his letters read by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren 100 years to the month after they were written. You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes. The podcast is a Marksmess production.
