Book Description

The classic text on the struggle for independence in Dublin. Major Haig ordered them to ‘prepare to fire’, whereupon they the fired indiscriminately, point blank, at the people in the street. Four people were killed and thirty-seven wounded. All Ireland seethed with indignation ... This new edition of the classic Dublin’s Fighting Story 1916–1921 features stories and reports from every aspect of the city’s involvement in the fight for Irish freedom, from the formation of Fianna Éireann and the Volunteers, through the Great Dublin Strike and Lockout in 1913 and the 1916 Rising, to the tragedy of Bloody Sunday in 1920 and the last major event of the War of Independence in Dublin, the burning of the Custom House in 1921. With a new introduction by Professor Diarmaid Ferriter, Dublin’s Fighting Story 1916–1921 offers the perspective of eye witnesses and the fighting men themselves on the struggle for Ireland’s independence in Dublin.

About the Author

Originally published by The Kerryman in 1947, there are four titles in the "Fighting Stories Series". 'Rebel Cork', 'Dublin', 'Kerry' and 'Limerick'. They record the events of the War of Independence in the words of the people who fought it and those who wrote about it at the time. Diarmaid Ferriter was born in Dublin and wrote the remarkably successful biography of Eamon De Valera, Judging Dev, which was accompanied by a radio series on RTE. He also wrote the acclaimed, 'The Transformation of Ireland 1900- 2000'.
