A lot of nice material starting to appear with the Easter Rising Centenary approaching.

Nice photo collection from Trinity College

Richard O'Carroll TC

An interesting site re Richard O'Carroll, a Dublin Councillor and Secretary of the Bricklayers Union.

He took part in the Rising and was at the Delahunt Pub when captured and shot by Captain Bowen-Colthurst. He died some days later.

Captain Bowen-Colthurst wasn't charged with the murder of Richard O'Carroll.
