From the front inside fly leaf: Over sixty Volunteers were killed in action during the Easter Rising. After the confusion of the fighting and its aftermath it is understandable that there were discrpancies in the death lists published in various accounts (including on memorium cars and in the subsequent Rolls of Honour). Some people are mentioned under a variety of names, others are mentioned only by a name and no other details, and others still who were killed in action are not mentiones at all. The accuracy of the given dates and location of death is also often questioned.
This book brings together the stories of these Volunteers. It examines witness statements from fellow volunteers, and contemporary reports and other sources, to provide detailed information on how, where and when these volunteers died. Chapters include:
  • The opposing Sides
  • Timeline of Death
  • Ballykissane Pier
  • The City Hall
  • South Dublin Union
  • College of Surgeons
  • Church Street
  • Mendicity Institute
  • Boland's Mills and Mount Street
