Summary and Info
This work is dedicated to detailing the actions in and around Dublin's General Post Office during the Easter Rising in 1916. The building served as headquarters for the Irish Volunteers and the Citizen Army, led by Padraig Pearse and James Connolly, and was shelled in the suppression of the Uprising. The newly proclaimed Irish Republic was quickly and brutally suppressed but the memory of the heroism depicted that week and of the executions that followed changed Irish history forever.
