Rebellion is here...

Fanned by flames of Revolution in America and France, the events of 1798 in Ireland are forever etched in blood on the annals of Irish history. Vividly re-told in an exciting interpretation of events, the “Rebellion Experience” at the multi-award winning National 1798 Rebellion Centre is not to be missed.
Meet key figures of the Rebellion, including John Shehan (The Croppy Boy), Tom the Devil and General Gerard Lake, and experience the poignant 4-D audio visual interpretation of the Battle of Vinegar Hill. Join the FREE weapons and cookery demonstrations throughout the week (Details available on website).
While here, why not also visit VINEGAR HILL BATTLEFIELD, site of the most famous battle of the 1798 Rebellion. Its current peace, serenity, and spectacular views belie its background as one of the bloodiest battlefields in Irish history. 20,000 men, women, and children faced 10,000 well-armed and well-trained members of the Crown Forces, in a battle that lasted only four hours, but left 1,500 dead and a county distraught.
