I have kept this special edition of the Irish Independent from 1966; it marked the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The armed rebellion broke out in Dublin on Easter Monday, 24 April 1916. It would pave the way for the political emergence of Sinn Fein and the partitioning of Ireland within five years. The newspaper shows how important the event was to Irish history and world history 50 years later. It seems hard to believe that in six years' time we will be looking at the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising. Contributed by Cahal McKeown during the AHOW event at Enniskillen Library.
