G.P.O Staff in 1916
An intriguing story of how ordinary men and women react in extraordinary circumstances.
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Post office records and photographs, many previously unpublished, reveal the importance of the role played by postal staff during that week and provide fascinating eye-witness accounts of events as they unfolded across the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 G.P.O 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.
