Overview

Dublin's Mansion House has been a centre of political and social life for the past 300 years. In the revolutionary years 1912–1923 it was the scene of many key events in the struggle for national independence and social progress—including the women's movement, the fight for trade union rights and the movement for national independence, culminating in the establishment of Dáil Eireann and the underground Government of the Irish Republic, the formal address of which was the Mansion House. For the first time, this book brings these events together in this historic location. This book is half in English, half in Irish.
