The GPO is not only the headquarters of the post office in Ireland, it is the birthplace of Irish communications. On Easter Monday 23 April 1916 it became a key positional point for the rebels during the Rising. Inside in the An Post Museum there is a copy of the Proclamation and a short film telling the story of what happened in the GPO's telegraph room on the afternoon of its capture.
A handbook to the events and locations of the Easter 1916 Rising. This ‘1916 bible’ will be invaluable to anyone with an interest in recent Irish history who wants to separate the facts from the fiction.
