Description

A day-by-day account of the 1916 Rising, in the form of a series of letters to his brother Edward, from Alfred Fannin, managing director of a medical and surgical supply business in Grafton Street, now Fannin Healthcare Ireland. A unique chronicle of this major event in modern Irish history, published for the first time, the diary provides vivid information on the food shortages, looting, the role of rumour, the element of surprise when the Rising began, and the military aspects – though it also reflects the confusion about what was happening and who planned it.
