  • Real story of Easter Proclamation

    1916 Easter Proclamation - The Three Printers of the Proclamation

    The real Story of the printing of the Easter Proclamation April 24th, 1916 by Nellie Cifford-Donnelly Irish Press 24.04.1934.  Read below and download the full page!! 1916 Easter proclamation

    Extract from Irish Press 24.04.1934  - The  inside story of the setting up of the Proclamation of Easter Week has, I think, not yet been told in detail; yet it has all the elements of real drama in it. Three Dublin workers, members of the Dublin Typographical Provident Society, were those to whom this most dangerous but effective task was given. The printing press of the Republic was at Liberty Hall. An armed guard had to protect the machine against police raids, and it was in an exciting atmosphere that the three men set up and printed the Proclamation. Their names will always be linked with the Insurrection: they are: Christopher Brady,' printer; Michael Molloy and Liam O'Brien, compositors.

  • Battle of Verdun 200,000 lost

    Battle of Verdun German loses mounting

    The news as it was reported this day a 100 years ago from the Irish Independent 14.03.1916 (download the full page below)

    "Times" War Telegram ( Article extract )
    Paris, Sunday.
    French military opinion is inclined, on the whole, to believe that on their present line the French will be able to beat back the utmost effort of the enemy, and is prepared to admit
    that the fate of Verdun is no longer in doubt. The Germans may yet, if they are willing to pay some 500,000 lives, take Verdun. The blunt fact of the fighting is that since March 2, the enemy has been unable to make any progress, save in his casualty lists, which are now beginning to reach very serious figures. Fruitless German slaughter has again been the chief feature of the weekend upon the battlefield of Verdun. It has long been noticed that every time the French artillery has been unusually successful in  locating  the German batteries or  bombarding German billets  the enemy has sent a deluge of shells into Rheims.
