Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

Padraig Pearse Oration Re-enactment

Daily at 2.30pm

* Ends 28th of September 2014 *

"As one generation took the baton from another" History Ireland.

In 2014 we are continuing our series of re-enactments & orations of famous Irish patriots.

"The Fools, the Fools, the Fools! - they have left us our Fenian dead - And while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace." Pádraig Pearse, Glasnevin Cemetery 1915.

This oration roused Irish republican feeling and was a significant element in the lead-up to the Easter Rising of 1916. 

The now famous speech delivered by Padraig Pearse at the grave of Fenian, Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa on 1st August, 1915 is re-enacted daily at 2.30pm by an actor dressed as Pearse in full uniform.

All Re-enactments at Glasnevin Cemetery Museum are kindly supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht
