Decade of Centenaries


Clare Decade of Centenaries Programme 2021

Clare Decade of Centenaries Programme 2020

Clare Decade of Centenaries Programme 2019

The Decade of Centenaries commemorates an eventful decade in Ireland’s history which included the Home Rule campaign, World War One, the 1916 Rising through to the foundation of the Free State, the War of Independence and the Civil War. It was also a decade of social change which witnessed the suffrage movement and the 1913 Lockout. The Decade of Centenaries programme aims to commemorate these events in a tolerant, inclusive and respectful way.

Local Authorities oversee the Community Strand of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media's Commemorative Programme. Funding is provided annually to each Local Authority and a programme of commemorations is submitted to the Commemorations Unit of the Department for approval. The Community Strand encourages a collaborative approach between the State, local authority network and community organisations.

A Decade of Centenaries Project Awards Scheme is advertised by Clare Councy Council annually inviting applications from community, historical and commemorative groups to commemorate events which happened in Clare during this period.

The terms of the scheme are based on the guidance of the Commemorations Unit of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and follow the principles laid down by the Expert Advisory Group on Centenary Commemorations. The Commemorations Unit recognise ‘that local cultural organisations, archives, museums and libraries act in positions of ‘cultural brokers’ and have formed meaningful relationships with local communities.’

Details of national Decade of Centenaries events can be found at www.decadeofcentenaries.com

Supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Community Strand of the Decade of Centenaries programme.
