RCSI 1916 Commemorative Programme




The centrepiece of RCSI's 1916 Commemorative programme, a special exhibition ‘Surgeons and Insurgents - RCSI and the Easter Rising', has now finished.

The exhibition and lecture series ran for three weeks and told the story of Easter 1916 through the human stories of key figures associated with RCSI and the Easter Rising.

The exhibition then moved to the Dublin City Library & Archives on Pearse Street, Dublin 2 and was on display until August 2016.
