The Government is committed to respecting all traditions on this island equally. It recognises that developing a greater understanding of our shared history, in all its diversity, is essential to developing greater understanding and building a shared future.
Work is ongoing on the Decade of Centenaries Programme which focuses on the many significant centenaries occurring over the period 2012–2022, in a manner that is respectful to the different traditions and communities on the island of Ireland. The organisation of State Commemorations is coordinated by a number of Government Departments, Organisations and State Agencies.
Further information on the Decade of Centenaries Programme is available from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
