We Need Your 1916 Family Stories & Memorabilia


We Need Your 1916 Family Stories & Memorabilia

The Fountain Resource Group needs your help for our local area’s 1916 Centenary Celebrations.  We hope to host an exhibition telling the story of the Easter Rising in our area.  Basically, we are looking for any folk story, account or materials people may have relating to Rialto, the South Dublin Union, Marrowbone Lane Distillery, Watkins Brewery, Roe’s Distillery or the Mendacity Centre during the Rising period.

We want to write down every story and copy any photo, which we will archive on our site for posterity, as well as, display them at our exhibition.  The exhibition will be part of a series of events we hoped to host on the run up to the centenary starting in March.  Please, if you know of any such accounts or would like to relate your family’s own stories don’t hesitate to contact us at or on 01-453 2936.
