Hidden Heroes of Easter Week: Memories of Volunteers from England Who Joined the Easter Rising

by Robin Stocks - £14.99  Robin Stocks (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780993439902 | ISBN 10: 099343990x

In the middle of the Great War, members of the Irish community in British cities resolved to travel to Dublin to prepare for a rebellion to achieve Independence for Ireland.
 
The part played by the Manchester Volunteers has never before been made public; at last this exciting story of the Easter Rising and its build up can be brought to life in the words of those who took part.
 
Here are the experiences of a group of ordinary Volunteers who spent Easter Week under fire behind barricades or in the GPO. It concentrates on the human stories of two of them, a piper and a political radical, and also of their friend from Dublin who fought with the women’s volunteers, the Cumann na mBan.
 
This book captures the rebellious spirit of those times when Volunteers from England fought for Irish independence and to create a fairer world.
