This image gallery is composed of images taken from Dublin After The Six Days’ Insurrection (Dublin: Mecredy, Percy & Co., Ltd, 1916). The photos were taken by T.W. Murphy (also known as “The O’Tatur”), the sub-editor of The Motor News.
The images were taken in the immediate aftermath of the Easter Rising in Dublin and depict the devastation caused by the fighting. Please note that the heading underneath each image mirrors the caption accompanying the image as it appears in the printed publication.
We hope that these images may be of general interest and, in particular, to anyone doing research or a school project on the Easter Rising in Dublin.
