These commemorations won't come around again. So the advertisements for the Ireland 2016 centenary programme this Easter Weekend tell us. The events are specifically designed to be inclusive and family-friendly, with a view to attracting people of all ages to mark this historic occasion.
The highlight of the weekend will see 2,500 members of the Defence Forces - Army, Navy, Air Force and a UN peacekeeping section - as well as representatives of An Garda Síochána and other State emergency services.
These men and women, and their predecessors, have represented the country with distinction.
