I have not seen/heard of any plans to mark the anniversary in Enniscorthy - are there any?
My grandmother was one of the 1916 patriots, and I want to make sure I can travel back to Ireland next year for the 100th anniversary celebrations.

Hello,
There are mentions here - you could perhaps contact the newspapers for more information

Thanks! I see why you mention contacting the papers for further information, as neither article you link to thought to provide any contact details for the "Centenary Committee" - typical.....

i was going to suggest contacting Enniscorthy Castle http://enniscorthycastle.ie/plan-my-visit/about-enniscorthy-castle as I thought the tourist information office was there. We called last year but went to the 1798 centre instead.
On looking at the castle site, it mentions the 1916 exhibition if you scroll down  :)
