From May 1916 ‘A Rebels Who’s Who …Notes of Their Careers” April 2, 2013

Posted by irishelectionliterature in History, Ireland, Irish History.

Saw this at the back of a copy of the freesheet The Southside People recently and dug it up online. Its a very interesting piece of History giving a sense of the time, just after the rising when the various leaders were sentenced to death, Life Imprisonment or Ten Years. There are profiles of Thomas Clarke, Padraig and William Pearse, Thomas McDonagh, Joseph Plunkett, W.T Cosgrave,  Countess Markievicz and more. Whats particularly interesting is the profiles of those less well known but had prominent roles in the Rising.

It has the air of something an Irish Peter Linebaugh could use.

You’ll notice too William T Cosgrave is mentioned as having been “a recognised member of the Labour Party in the Council”
Its something I hadn’t known .
