Voices from the Easter Rising

by Ruan O'Donnell | 02 May 2016
Category: British History
Synopsis
Voices from the Easter Rising is a compelling collection of eyewitness accounts of the events of Easter Week 1916, and details how the Rising unfolded in Dublin and in a range of other Irish cities, towns and villages. Extraordinary first-hand testimonies from the ranks of the Irish Volunteers, the Citizen Army, Cumman na mBan, ordinary members of the public, and civil servants along with the perspectives of Dublin Castle civil servants alongside their counterparts within the British administration, reveal how the streets of Dublin and the lives of its citizens were completely altered. For those seeking an accurate understanding of how the events of Easter Week actually took place, this is essential reading. These dramatic first-hand narratives undercut the gender divide, provide an invaluable insight into this period and provide the reader with the most direct portrayal of the actions of the revolutionaries and the forces they raged against. Though the action beyond Dublin was sporadic, it nevertheless served as a riveting precursor to the fighting that was soon to be waged in the War of Independence. This book gives voice once more to the protagonists beyond the pantheon of martyrs, providing a new understanding of this epoch-making event that was to shape the course of modern Irish history.
