Almost three hundred people attended a ceremony in Glasnevin Cemetery on Sunday morning to remember the forty children who died in the 1916 Rising.

Through music and readings the children who lost their lives were remembered in a multi-faith ceremony which was opened by broadcaster Joe Duffy.

Relatives of the some of the deceased laid a wreath at the cemetery’s commemorative wall to the victims of 1916.

Forty balloons were then released to mark the lives of each of the children who lost their lives in Easter week 100 years ago.
