Decade of Centenaries
The Decade of Centenaries: 1912-1922, included a series of significant events in Ireland that changed the physical, cultural, political and economic landscape today, North and South. The Government of Ireland Act 1920 led to Northern Ireland as a separate legal entity on 3 May 1921, and in approaching the 100th anniversary, we have the opportunity to reflect on this period of time, acknowledging different perspectives and complexities of a contested history that may influence how people view and may respond to this anniversary. The Resource Fair offers a variety of approaches and opportunities for respectful listening and engaging in constructive dialogue about the impact of Partition. of Centenaries
