Fitzgeralds “the Homestead”
Quarry road cabra, Dublin, Ireland 7

Our new limited edition 230 page book which profiles over 40 local men and women who participated in 1916, which covers the battle at the Cabra bridges, uncovers some great stories and even prints rare photos for the first time. Sure we even highlight the local links to the Rising in Galway and Louth.

Our guest speaker at the launch will be Liz Gillis, the noted historian and author.

Music will be by Paul Stone, a great singer of ballads.

Join us as we continue to celebrate and commemorate our local men and women who fought for freedom in 1916.

Edited by historian and author Dr Brian Hanley with contributions from fellow historians Donal Fallon and Hugo McGuinness and local resident Ado Perry.
