A living history of Easter Week 1916

Dublin City in flames Easter Week 1916

Renowned Dublin historian Shane MacThomais will conduct a 1916 Walking Tour of Dublin city on Friday 14th April as part of Dublin Sinn Féin's 90th Anniversary 1916 Commemoration. The tour meets at 12pm on the middle island of O'Connell Street facing the GPO. The tour will take in many of the battle sites of Easter Week as well as buildings of historical note including the Rotunda where the Irish Volunteers were founded in 1913 and Liberty Hall where the Irish Citizen Army formed up on Easter Monday 1916 under the command of James Connolly Commandant General of the Dublin Division Army of the Irish Republic.

"For four days they have fought and toiled almost without cessation, almost without sleep; and in the intervals of fighting, they have sung songs of the freedom of Ireland. No man has complained, no man has asked why. Each individual has spent himself, happy to pour out his strength for Ireland and for Freedom. If they do not win this fight, they will at least have deserved to win it. But win it they will, though they may win it in death. Already they have won a great thing. They have redeemed Dublin from many shames and made her name splendid among the names of Cities.
If I were to mention names of individuals, my list would be a long one. I will name only that of Commandant-General James Connolly, Commanding Officer of Dublin Division. He lies wounded, but is still the guiding brain of our resistance."
