January 15, 2016.  A group of Irish and Italian people, meeting in the University Roma Tre to commemorate the centenary of the Rising in Dublin in 1916, finished their session with a visit to St.Isidores, where Micheal gave them a brief history of the house, where there were readings from writings of some participants in the Rising, and some traditional Irish music presented by Comhaltas Ceoltoiri na Roimhe.
