"Dublin Six Days after the Insurrection” contains photographs which were passed for transmission abroad by the Official Press Bureau in a booklet format and includes a note from General Sir John Grenfell Maxwell the British Officer who is best known for his execution of the leaders of the Easter Rising.
This is a magisterial narrative of the most turbulent decade in Anglo-Irish history: a decade of unleashed passions that came close to destroying the parliamentary system and to causing civil war in the United Kingdom.
The Easter Rising began at 12 noon 24 April 1916 and lasted for six short but bloody days resulting in the deaths of innocent civilians the destruction of many parts of Dublin and the true beginning of Irish independence.
"Packed with violence political drama and social and cultural upheaval the years 1913-1923 saw the emergence in Ireland of the Ulster Volunteer Force to resist Irish home rule and in response the Irish Volunteers who would later evolve into the IRA.
"The Easter Rising of 1916 in which just over a thousand Irish rebels seized key locations in Dublin and proclaimed the independence of the Irish Republic before being brutally suppressed by the vastly larger and better-equipped British Army is an event whose meaning remains contested to this day.
