Easter Rising 1916 – The Lego Version



Wicklow County Council have helped create this incredible video telling the story of 1916…. through Lego.

The specially commissioned video is called ‘Freedom – A 1916 Story’ and represents nine months of work by Createschool. Createschool has been delivering workshops for more than 15 years, encouraging school pupils to get to grips with their creative sides and specialises in Lego stop-motion animation.

Including original music, Freedom hopes to deliver the history of the Rising to viewers of all ages, with historian Pat Liddy working with the directors to ensure the historical accuracy of the piece.

Written, produced and directed by Peter Baxter and Joseph Orr, you can watch the video in full below. Look out for Kilmainham Gaol and other key landmarks.
