The story of the 1916 Easter Rising and its aftermath from a new persepectiveThe Abbey Theatre played a leading role in the politicisation of the revolutionary generation that won Irish freedom, but comparatively little is known about the men and women who formed the lifeblood of the institution: those whose radical politics drove them to fight in the 1916 Rising.Drawing on a huge range of previously unpublished material, The Abbey Rebels of 1916 explores the experiences, hopes and dreams of these remarkable but largely forgotten individuals: Mire Nic Shiubhlaigh, the Abbey's first leading lady, Peadar Kearney, author of the national anthem, feminist Helena Molony, the first female political prisoner of her generation, Sen Connolly, the first rebel to die in the Rising, carpenter Barney Murphy, usherette Ellen Bushell, and Hollywood star Arthur Shields.Invigorating and provocative, this is the story of how, in the years following the Easter Rising, the radical ideals that inspired their revolution were gradually supplanted by a conservative vision of the nation Ireland would become. Lavishly illustrated with 200 documents and images, it provides a fresh and compelling account of the Rising and its aftermath.


Fearghal McGarry is a historian based at Queen's University Belfast. He has written widely on modern Irish history, particularly on republicanism and aspects of the Irish revolution. His recent book, Rebels, has been adapted for the Abbey Theatre by Jimmy Murphy, and he worked with the film-maker Des Bell to adapt his biography of Frank Ryan into a docu-drama. Much of his recent research on the Easter Rising of 1916 has focused on the role of memory and commemoration in Irish history.
