Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

Brian Hanley: 'The Rising and its aftermath in Phibsborough and Glasnevin, 1916-17'

'The area around Phibsborough and Glasnevin was a hotbed of radical activity in the run up to 1916. During the Rising itself fighting took place in Phibsborough with the British using artillery for the first time in Dublin. Many activists who lived locally also played an important role in rebuilding the republican movement in the year after the Rising.'

Brian Hanley is a historian and the author, amongst other things, of The IRA, 1926-36 , The lost revolution: the story of the Official IRA and the Workers Party (with Scott Millar), and Our rising: Cabra in 1916 (with Donal Fallon).
