40 children who were killed during the Easter Rising, have been remembered at a ceremony in Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin.
40 balloons were released by the children's relatives, and the event also featured songs, prayers and poems to remember the young lives lost as a result of fighting in Easter 1916.
Their stories have been highlighted in a book by broadcaster Joe Duffy, and their names are also on the Remembrance Wall in Glasnevin Cemetary.
The first child to die was 2 year old Sean Foster who was shot dead in his pram, by what is thought to have been a stray rebel bullet, while he was out with his mother on Church Street in Dublin on Easter Monday 1916.
Terry O'Neill, who is Sean Foster's first cousin, says it is important for the young lives lost in Rising to be remembered:
