Within this book there are hundreds of individual stories of men and women who took part in the Easter Rising of 1916. Their full life stories, both before and after 1916 are varied and fascinating. But it is the events of Easter week and the fighting around the Four Courts, the Mendicity Institution and surrounding areas that bind them together in this fantastic biography.


Jimmy Wren has done a great service to relatives of those who fought in the Four Courts and Mendicity Garrisons and also to future historians of 1916. Every participant who fought for Ireland’s freedom in these garrisons is given a biography based on Jimmy’s extensive research and input from relatives. Well done Jimmy, I recommend this book to 1916 Four Courts relatives and to historians of 1916.
