Who exactly wrote the 1916 proclamation? What typos were in the original? Who hoisted the flags above the GPO? How many women came out to fight? What was happening in the rest of the country? For bite-sized facts about the Eater Rising, including who organised it; the positions occupied and the garrison strengths; how many people died; the weapons used; the ships and boats associated with the Rising; and the last statements of the executed leaders. Also included is a list of Easter Rising medal recipients - published for the first time - as well as casualty lists, prisoner lists and the names of everyone who signed the 1936 Roll of Honour. If a relative of yours came out for the most important week in modern Irish history, you'll find their name in here.
