Ahead of the unveiling of the People's Acorn on Thursday 14 December, of the "Dearcán na nDaoine" sculpture at Áras an Uachtaráin, we have produced a short video summarising the genesis of the sculpture, including the workshops that produced the material for the time capsule that will be included in the sculpture.

Watch Short Video Here!

‘Dearcan na nDaoine - the People’s Acorn’ was created by Irish artist Rachel Joynt and will take its place in the grounds of Áras an Uachtaráin, as part of the State 1916 centenary commemorations.

The ceremony was attended by 170 children from 7 schools, who contributed their thoughts and wishes for Ireland’s future, as well as older people, from Lourdes Day Care Centre and the Bealtaine writers group in Malahide, who wrote their thoughts and memories for inclusion in the time capsule.

Also in attendance will be a number of relatives from people who died in the Easter Rising, artists and members of the jury who selected the winning design, following the call, in late 2015, by President Michael D. Higgins and Sabina Higgins for a suitable 1916 commemorative piece.
