Irish-American Crossroads is pleased to announce a second round of the popular Walking the Rising walking tour!
Join San Francisco writer Elizabeth Creely on a walking tour of the Mission District’s revolutionary Irish past. In 1916 seven Irishmen declared that Ireland would be an independent state in the streets of Dublin, and free from centuries of British rule. In America, millions of Irish Americans worked tirelessly in support of Éirí Amach na Cásca, the Easter Rising.
Two Irishmen, Daniel Harnedy and Larry De Lacey, brought that struggle to the streets of the Mission District.
Walk with Elizabeth as she follows in their footsteps, uncovering the Mission District’s Irish past. More than any other neighborhood in San Francisco, it was the Mission District where freedom for Ireland was envisoned and funded in Irish-Americans homes, meeting halls, churches and places of business from 16th street to 24th street.
The walking distance is about 2 miles. It will conclude at St. Peter’s Church, 1200 Florida Street, San Francisco. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring some water and remember to wear sunscreen.
The tour is limited to 25 people.
Sign up soon! This is a popular tour, which sells out quickly.
