And they're off! The struggle for heart and soul of 2016 starts here
Sinn Fein isn't content to just commemorate 1916. It appears to want to rerun it as well.
The battle started this weekend with a ceremony at Glasnevin to mark the 100th anniversary of the funeral of Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa.
That was attended by President Higgins and the Taoiseach, though Sinn Fein decided the official event wasn't good enough and so organised one of its own a few hours later.
