A special ceremony will take place to Commemorate the Women of 1916 in IMMA, in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham

On 8th March, International Women's Day, The 77 Women Commemoration Quilt project will be unveiled in IMMA, in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. The Commemoration Quilt project is designed to create a conversation between the women of 1916 and women living in Ireland today. A group of 77 women have been invited to creatively respond to the stories of the 77 women imprisoned in Richmond Barracks. The two layers of stories, those from 100 years ago and those of our own time will be brought together in a Quilt which will be unveiled as part of the commemoration ceremony for the women of 1916 on the 8th March 2016.

More details can be found on the Richmond Barracks website.
