Easter Rising Centenary, Pearl River

At Rockland County's Gaelic Athletic Fields in Pearl River and at locations around the world, people of Irish descent commemorated the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin Ireland. The Proclamation of the Irish Republic was read, wreaths were presented for those who died along with military unit gun salutes, and speakers recounted how the failed rebellion led to a successful fight for Independence from Britain.
