The Easter Rising mostly took place in Ireland's capital city and directly impacted on Dublin City Council. Some fighting occurred in sites belonging to the council, including City Hall itself, while some employees of the council fought in the Rising; other employees were tasked with trying to deal with the aftermath.
This collection of essays is the first detailed study to examine the impact of Dublin City Council on the 1916 Rising and in turn its effects on the council. It features an analysis of the political background of the elected council, which, although it included members from Labour and Sinn Féin, also contained members from the Irish Party and unionists. It also includes a full list of council employees who fought in the Easter Rising.
This wide-ranging book is essential for a complete understanding of the 1916 Rising, providing a fresh and accessible perspective on this iconic event from a novel point of view
