AOH remembers Easter Rising

The men and women of the Ancient Order of Hibernians held an Easter Rising com­memoration at the Irish memorial on Charlotte Street in Charleston on April 24. The event included speeches and the placing of a wreath. The Rising, also called the Easter Rebellion, was an armed insurrection during Easter Week in April 1916 by Irish republicans to end British rule in Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic.
