In 1959, the results of this research - including 1,773 witness statements - were placed in 83 steel boxes and locked into a strongroom in Government Buildings. Rebels, edited by one of Irelands top young historians, brings the best of the surviving accounts of the Easter Rising together into a comprehensive, accessible and thrillingly readable telling of that much-debated insurrection, the first in a series of events that brought about Irish independence.

From the witnesses recollections of their schooling and other childhood influences to their accounts of what happened at Easter 1916, Rebels tells this famous story in a new and exhilarating way.
