A Walk Through Rebel Dublin 1916 is a comprehensively illustrated guide to the Rising of Easter Week 1916, based on the significant locations of the rebellion.
Dealing separately with thirty buildings and sites throughout the city - including the GPO, Liberty Hall, Trinity College, the Four Courts and Dublin Castle - the author provides a brief, fascinating history of the events and personalities that dominated these locations during Easter Week.
A contemporary photograph of each location is juxtaposed with a photograph of the building or streetscape as it looks today.
While some dramatic changes have taken place in the architecture of Dublin over the course of the twentieth century, there is much that has remained unaltered, as these images will testify.
A Walk Through Rebel Dublin 1916 can be read and enjoyed without visiting the locations featured, but the reader is encouraged to walk the streets of Dublin, book in hand, to get a vivid sense of some of the most dramatic episodes in Ireland's history.
