Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council published two new books in its Decade of Commemorations series.

  • We Were There: 77 Women of the Easter Rising 1916 by Mary McAuliffe and Liz Gillis Published 8 March 2016
    This publication features a biographical listing by garrison of the 77 women who took part in the Rising and were arrested and held in Richmond Barracks after the surrender. Many of these women were members of The Irish Citizen Army, Cumann na mBán or Clan na nGaedhal Girl scouts. Accompanying essays analyse the activism of these women and their contributions and legacies in the new Irish Free State.
  • Dublin City Council and The 1916 Rising editor John Gibney; Series Editors Mary Clark and Máire Kennedy. Published May 2016
    Dublin City Council had a strong connection to the 1916 Rising through the involvement of elected members and Dublin Corporation employees, while the City Hall was a garrison building, held on Easter Monday by the Irish Citizen Army. The thirteen essays in this book, researched and written by experts in their field, explore the events and strategies leading into and following the Rising as it concerned the City Council.

Dublin City Council is pleased to support these two books
