"Proclamation of Independence..." Dublin Tip by Enzo
Dublin, Ireland: 100 reviews and 191 photos
Proclamation of Independence as read to the people of Ireland, GPO Dublin, April 1916
On Easter Monday 1916- 24 April - about 1,200 men and women of the IRB and James Connollys Irish Citizen Army seized the General Post Office (GPO), the Four Courts, Boland's Mill, St. Stephen's Green, Jacobs Factory and the South Dublin Union.
In a written proclamation, they claimed Ireland as a republic, and guaranteed religious and civil liberty, and equal rights and equal opportunities to all citizens.
<p>You can read the full Proclamation of Independence in my travelogues, I think it is very interesting reading. I also intend to add a brief history of the rebellion for anyone interested.
