Eyewitness accounts of the Rising

This Irish Times account of the "lived reality" of the 1916 Rising is based on first-hand testimonies from survivors, gathered in the late 1940s and 1950s by the Bureau of Military History. First published in 2006, this day-by-day narrative is an effort to convey how people actually experienced the Rising, an event whose reality has been all but occluded by 100 years of myth.
