Children of the Rising PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Children of the Rising free pdf Children of the Rising is the first ever account of the young lives violently lost during the week of the 1916 Rising: long-forgotten and never commemorated, until now. Boys, girls, rich, poor, Catholic, Protestant - no child was guaranteed immunity from the bullet and bomb that week, in a place where teeming tenement life existed side by side with immense wealth. Drawing on extensive original research, along with interviews with relatives, Joe Duffy creates a compelling picture of these forty lives, along with one of the cut and thrust of city life between the two canals a century ago. This gripping story of Dublin and its people in 1916 will add immeasurably to our understanding of the Easter Rising. Above all, it honours the forgotten lives, largely buried in unmarked graves, of those young people who once called Dublin their home.

About Joe Duffy

Broadcaster Joe Duffy is the presenter of Ireland's most popular daily radio show, Liveline, on RTE Radio 1. He also presents Joe Duffy's Spirit Level on RTE television and writes a weekly column for the Irish Mail on Sunday. Born in Dublin's Mountjoy Square and reared in Ballyfermot, his bestselling memoir Just Joe was published in 2010. His interest in researching and writing about the forgotten children killed in 1916 was sparked by an art project he undertook in Easter 2013 for the Jack and Jill Children's Foundation. In 2014 he organised the first national ecumenical service of reclamation and remembrance for the children killed in the Easter Rising.
