South Dublin Comhairle na nÓg are planning on sealing their 1916 – 2016 Commemorative Time Capsule on Saturday May 28th at 12:30. The event will take place at Corkagh Park in the Rose Garden. Mayor Sarah Holland will officially install the time capsule with the aid of the members of Comhairle na nÓg.
The capsule will be opened in 50 year’s time and has been filled with items that represent what life is like for a young person in 2016, and reflects on the 1916 Proclamation and its resonance today.
In 2066, the young people will return to Corkagh Park and retrieve the Time Capsule, to reflect on the passage of time and the evolution of the Republic since the Rising and the Commemoration.
Mayor Sarah Holland, spoke in advance of the event;
“It is fitting that the young people in South Dublin Comhairle na nÓg have chosen to commemorate Easter 1916 by installing a time capsule to be opened by them in 50 years’ time, as it is the next generation who will progress the ideals and aspirations of the proclamation into the future.”
