About this item

Gibney examines some aspects of the origins, course, and outcome of the 1916 Easter Rising of Irish nationalists against British occupation by exploring the stories attached to a selection of contemporary documents and artefacts that have survived. Among them are the Ulster Covenant of 1912: Ulster Unionism and resistance to home rule, the manuscript of Patrick Pearse's oration at the 1915 funeral of Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa, Wesley Hanna's account of the Rising: a civilian perspective, James Connolly's blood-stained shirt: a wounded visionary, and playing cards used by Thomas MacDonagh in captivity: the executions.
