The 1916 Rebellion walking tour was a great way to learn about significant events in Irish history.
A small group of us gathered at the International Bar in Wicklow Street, where we were met by historian and author Lorcan Collins.
He's a witty, clever man who entertained as much as he informed.
After a brief introduction we took to the streets of Dublin, stopping at various points for explanations about what occurred in the 1916 uprising.
We saw bullet holes in the Post Office building where the Republican troops ensconced themselves and proclaimed Irish independence.
We saw where one of the leaders, Michael O'Rahilly, died in a doorway after leading a charge to evacuate the GPO.
Seeing where these events occurred and having them explained by someone who's knowledgeable and passionate about them, was a thoroughly worthwhile experience.
