THE WEEKEND IS finally here.

After months of anticipation, and also a deal of politicians trying to outdo each other in ‘claiming ownership’ of the Easter Rising, the commemoration of the centenary proper will kick off in Dublin today with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Garden of Remembrance.

That will set the scene for three days of celebrations, mostly in Dublin but also around the country, with RTÉ running Reflecting the Rising on Easter Monday, touted as the biggest public event Ireland has ever seen.

600,000 people are set to travel to Dublin for the celebrations according to estimates, but will you be among them?

We’re asking: Will you be attending an event over the Easter Rising centenary weekend?
