New suite of music to commemorate 1916 Rising

By Esther HAYDEN

There will be a very special night of music in the National Opera House on Monday, March 28.

On the night a new suite of music, 'Marcalla 1916', composed by Michael Rooney and performed by the Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland, will be performed.

The piece places the Easter Rising in the context of Ireland's story from Famine to present times.

'Macalla 1916' begins with a performance at the RDS on March 26, a state event for the relatives of those who took part in the Rising before heading to Drogheda and then onto Wexford before taking in Cork, Limerick, Monaghan, Sligo and Derry.
