This Powerpoint resource on the 1916 Easter Rising summarises the background to the conflict, who was involved and the buildings that took centre stage during the conflict. It also focuses on a little known figure in the Rising, Elizabeth O’ Farrell. The accompanying handout/worksheet is for follow-up pair work – it gives more information about the figure of Elizabeth O’ Farrell and gives pupils questions for research to find out more about her.
