16 Dead Men, a Lecture by Ms Anne-Marie Ryan

A talented stone carver, a student of the Irish language, a silk weaver, a clerk born in the tenements in Dublin,  a newspaper editor... young men who didn't seem to have much in common, yet they all died for the same cause, executed in the aftermath of the Easter Rising of 1916.
Anne-Marie Ryan's lecture focused on lesser known leaders of the events, on their personal circumstances and how they became involved.

Anne-Marie Ryan's book is published by Mercier Press
