GPO Staff in 1916 Ferguson, Stephen

ISBN: 9781856359948

The 1916 Rising has been studied from many different angles over the years but the unique perspective of GPO staff on the events of Easter Week has not previously been examined. Post office records and photographs, many previously unpublished, reveal the importance of the role played by postal staff during that week and provide fascinating eye-witness accounts of events as they unfolded across the city centre.

Here, based on the official reports of various GPO staff, is not merely an exciting account of Post Office people in turbulent times but also nuggets of new information that will be of interest to both historians and the many people for whom the drama of 1916 holds a special fascination.

*Contains original and fascinating internal communication documents to staff warning of the consequences of disloyalty to the crown
*Contains photographs from archives about 1916
