Poll: Will you be attending a 1916 centenary event?
The events kick off today with a flag-raising in Dublin Castle.

IT’S THE START of 2016, which marks 100 years since the Easter Rising.

To commemorate this pivotal event in Irish history, the State has organised a full year’s worth of events, including a parade, public projects and conferences. In addition, independent groups have organised events that mark the Rising.

The first official State event, a flag-raising ceremony, will take place today.

Some may plan to attend a huge range of these events, while others might be content not to attend any at all.

What about you: Will you be attending a 1916 centenary event?
