Easter Monday

This used to be something of a national holiday in the Republic of Ireland, being the anniversary of the beginning of the "Easter Rising" in 1916. I've searched what I could of the Irish media, at least that portion that doesn't charge, and once again, there seems to be no mention of it at all. Or at least no commemoration that the Irish media can bestir itself to mention. Sad to say, it seems that the Irish media loves Ireland and Irish tradition much the same way the American media loves America and her tradition.
