Following on from the huge success of the recent 1916 commemoration celebrations, this unique drone footage takes you over and into some of the key sites of the rising.

From the General Post Office on Dublin’s O’Connell Street to Kilmainham Gaol where the 1916 leaders were shot by firing squad, this video intersperses images of a bold Dublin city today with footage from the time of the rising.

The footage, from ProDrone, comes ahead of Drone Expo Ireland, a three-day exhibition in the RDS that kicks off this Friday, April 1, that will include the Irish military and the Dublin Fire Brigade – both will be exhibiting their unmanned equipment.

 The expo will feature some of the best known brands in drones and as well as Irish firms making their mark on the industry.

Samsung will be continuing its presentation of its virtual reality kit before its released to the general public.
