The Decade of Centenaries commemorates an eventful decade in Ireland’s history which included the Home Rule campaign, World War One, the 1916 Rising through to the foundation of the Free State, the War of Independence and the Civil War. It was also a decade of social change which witnessed the suffrage movement and the 1913 Lockout. The Decade of Centenaries programme aims to commemorate these events in a tolerant, inclusive and respectful way.
Local Authorities oversee the Community Strand of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media's Commemorative Programme. Funding is provided annually to each Local Authority and a programme of commemorations is submitted to the Commemorations Unit of the Department for approval. The Community Strand encourages a collaborative approach between the State, local authority network and community organisations.
