Revolution in Dublin


ISBN: 9781781170519

written by Liz Gillis.


The period 1913-23 in Dublin encompassed the Lockout, the Home Rule debates, the First World War, the Easter Rising, the War of Independence and the Civil War. These iconic events not only created the Ireland we live in today, but also helped generate change around the world. In these years Ireland went from being a loyal dominion of Great Britain to being the country that would initiate the demise of her Empire. The period has generated intrigue, excitement, inspiration and anger among generations of people and interest in the period shows no sign of waning. Much has been written on the iconic events and key figures of the period, but this book shows through fascinating photographs the story of the thousands of ordinary people who were involved in all these events, either as active participants, or those just trying to live through the upheaval. It gives a fascinating insight into the Dublin of the day and the lives of the people who lived there.

Liz Gillis is from Dublin and worked as a local history researcher in the St. Nicholas of Myra centre from 2004 to 2006, during which time she collaborated on a number of exhibitions relating to the history of Dublin. She now works in Kilmainham Gaol as a tour guide. In 2009 she gave a presentation on the burning of the Custom House in May 1921 at the Military History Society's conference on the War of Independence. She also organises walking tours on the history of the Dublin 8 area.
