The 1916 insurrection in the Liberties
dublin | history and heritage | opinion/analysis Thursday February 23, 2006 15:46 by Andrew - WSM - 1st of May wsm_ireland at yahoo dot com
The area in and around the Liberties and Portobello was the site of several rebel outposts during the 1916 insurrection and saw some of the fiercest fighting. The main rebel force under Ceannt was based in the South Dublin Union (now roughly St James Hospital) but there were also outposts in the Mendicity Institute (Ushers quay), Jamesons distillary (Marrowbone lane), Watkins brewery (Ardee st) and Jacobs biscuit factory.
In the fierce fighting at South Dublin Richard O’Reilly was one of first casualties on rebel side, another brother was also in the SDU but two further brothers were in the British army. His brother later observed, “That day there were two of us fighting for England, two of us against”. Heavy fighting also took place at the Mendicity Institute. On the other hand the rebels in Marrowbone lane were bypassed by the British and it is claimed they were even able to stage a ceile.
