O'Connell Street in Dublin went silent for a minute today, as the people of Ireland remembered,

those who fought for Irish Independence 106 years ago.

The ceremony was led by President Michael D Higgins and Taoiseach Micheál Martin at the GPO.

The Irish flag was lowered to half mast in honour of those who died - the President laid a wreath in their honour.

Defence Forces Chaplain Father Pascal Hanrahan, spoke of a new Ireland.

The priest said that those who had passed in the 1916 Rising were remembered and honoured today which included Men, Women and Children.
