With a new introduction by Diarmuid Ferriter, Dublin's Fughting Story offers the perspective of eye witnesses and the fighting men themselves on the struggle for Ireland's independence in Dublin.

Major Haig ordered them to ‘prepare to fire’, whereupon they 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 Dublin’s Fighting Story features stories and reports from every aspect of the War of Independence, from the formation of the Fianna Éireann and the Volunteers, through the Great Dublin Strike and Lock-out in 1913 and the 1916 Rising to the death of Seán Treacy in a bloody street shoot-out, the triumph and tragedy of Bloody Sunday and the burning of the Customs House.

Dublin’s Fighting Story offers the perspective of the eye witnesses and fighting men themselves to the struggle for independence in Dublin.
