A STATE FUNERAL will be held today to for executed 1916 leader Thomas Kent.

It follows on from the commemoration for Fenian leader O’Donovan Rossa.

But as debate continues over the Easter Rising, there have been calls from family members of those who died in the Royal Irish Constabulary during the Rising for their deaths to be remembered too.

It’s a difficult subject, but what do you think?
