Easter Rising Online Resource

Continuing on from their wonderful Yeats Online Exhibition, the National Library of Ireland bring 1916 to your web browser with The 1916 Rising: Personalities and Perspectives - an online exhibition.

The exhibition features, studies and analyses over 500 images from the Library’s rich holdings of books, newspapers, photographs, drawings, proclamations and manuscript material. It looks at those who set the stage for the events of Easter Week 1916, the seven signatories of the proclamation, the others executed in the aftermath of the Rising, the casualties and the survivors.
