Easter Rising #BriFri — 5 Comments

  1. Nothing! I know nothing about it! And that lack of knowledge really came into play when I was reading The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry, set in Ireland just after the uprising. I think.
    Thanks Joy, have a good week!

  2. Hm, I guess I haven’t read too much in depth about the Easter Uprising! I know the basics but that’s all.

    This week I’ve been reading lots of Diana Wynne Jones and Terry Pratchett. I just got a new collection of Pratchett’s short pieces and I’m excited to finish off MarchMagics with it. 🙂

  3. I wish I knew more about it. I was born in Dublin as were the generations before me. I should have asked both sets of grandparents about it. My Dad did mention that his father spent time inside the GPO during the Rising, but of course I didn’t pay much attention. I am off to ask my Irish cousins if their Dad ever mentioned anything!!
    I’ve read many books both fact and fiction about the Rebellion.

    We were in Dublin in September and they were gearing up for the anniversary.
