President Higgins praises inspirational Irish Citizen Army in new charity calendar

President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, has written the introduction to this charity calendar which celebrates the story of the Irish Citizen Army (ICA) and its commemoration during the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

The calendar features historic images of the Irish Citizen Army, alongside photographs from this year of the ICA Re-enactment Group which included members of the Prison Officers Association and SIPTU.

The calendar costs €10 and can be bought online (plus postage and packing) in Focus Ireland shops or from Liberty Hall in Dublin.

It is the perfect gift for trade unionists and all those with an interest in Irish history.
