Cumann Gaolta 1916 / The 1916 Relatives Association is a membership organisation of the relatives of those who fought for Irish Freedom in the Easter Rising of 1916.  We were founded in June 2014 in preparation for the Centenary of the Rising to ensure our full participation in the Governments plan for the anniversary and to ensure that the voices of relatives are heard in relation to the commemorative legacy of 1916 now and into the future.

The association works to implement its aims which were agreed by members at its founding meetings. These activities include holding commemorative events to honour our relatives who fought and died in the Easter Rising and influencing Government policy in relation to the memory and legacy of 1916.
