The Battle of Moore Street – 28-29 April, 1916 – marked the end of the Easter Rising, but not the end of the struggle for Irish freedom.

Drawing on the recollections and words of those who were there, historian Ray Bateson retells the thrilling story of those two desperate days as the members of the GPO Garrison sought valiantly to fight their way out of the encircling rings of fire and British firepower that

threatened to destroy them and those they fought to free..

Now, 100 years later, this is the most significant battlefield site remaining from those days that changed not just Ireland, but the World.

This book is essential reading for all who wish to understand the national significance of Moore Street and the surrounding area, and the bravery of those who fought and died there.
