The cycle will mark the role that the bicycle played in the Rising as volunteers left what was Scoil Eanna on the morning of Easter Monday and made their way by bike into the city centre to participate in the rebellion. The cycle will take place on Sunday, June 19th at 11.30, preceded by a free tour of the museum and a talk by the museum curator.
