In April 2016, one century after the Easter Rising of 1916, Ireland marked a defining moment in its history: an armed rebellion against imperial rule, and a week in which a few thousand visionaries took over Central Dublin and declared an independent Republic of equals. In this episode we hear testimony from the Groves family of West Belfast whose daughter, born at the height of the Troubles, is now a Sinn Fein councilwoman; Fra McCann a former IRA prisoner, now running for office, and anti-austerity, anti-gentrification activists in the South, who are fighting to save a historic site of the 1916 revolt from being turned into a shopping mall.
