“We were there” – 77 women of the Easter Rising

October 14, 2023 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Richmond Barracks is delighted to welcome Liz Gillis, co-author (with Mary McAuliffe) of Richmond Barracks, 1916 “We were there” – 77 women of the Easter Rising’. A landmark text published in 2016, it shone a light on a previously overlooked aspect of the revolutionary period.

In the words of John Banville, “This book goes a long way towards righting the balance and remedying a historic injustice.”

Liz is the author of numerous studies on the revolutionary period and was appointed Historian in Residence to South Dublin County Council in 2021. In 2018 Liz was a recipient of the Lord Mayor’s Award for her contribution to history.
