Tan War. Note the cage over the troop carrier to prevent grenades being thrown in. An old ex Irish Guard/Irish Soldier once told me that a man came up with the idea of attaching three pieces of line with fishing hooks on each to the bombs which then would hook on the cage. I cant remember the guys name who he mentioned, but I do remember he was known throughout the ranks as the Hook Murphy. The only snag I believe was that the guy throwing the grenade had to be very careful so as to not get the hooks caught in his sleeve when lobbing it

Lancers in O'Connell Street 1916. The dead Lancers killed in the first charge of the Rising on the GPO are all buried in Grangegorman Cemetery. When you go in the gate, they are over on the extreme right.

Where Kevin O'Higgins was shot in Booterstown on his way to mass. The church where he was heading is down the road along the coast, just down from the punchbowl pub. An "X" inscribed into the pavement where he fell is still there to this day.

Church Street 1916

By Frank Callery :

a shot of the other end of Moore Street at the North east junction with Henry Street. Numbers 1-4 were flattened. This is the rubble tidies up within ten days of the Rising, so you can imagine the rough terrain over which the lads had to make their way to defendable buildings, with fire coming from the barricade at the other end of the street — see first picture. Hope this adds to the story

By Terry Fagan:

Here is a very rear photograph which was giving to me as part of a batch of old photographs taken after the 1916 Easter Rising. It shows More Lane looking down from Parnell Street. The bullet ridden house is sometimes known “As the white house” This is the house the men and women had to run past to get onto More Street. There was an old horse dray thrown across the lane to block the British Army machine gun fire coming down at them. Believe it or not part of the building is still there. If you take a copy of the photograph down to the lane. Stand back a look at the building thats there. You can make out the old house in amongst the renovation that was carried out on the old house.
