These slides show photographs and other images relating to the history of Ireland. The sequence focuses particularly on events between the Easter Rising of 1916 and independence in 1922, and was put together by Henry Sara using images from newspapers, magazines and other publications.

Unfortunately Sara's notes for this talk haven't survived, but we have been able to put together captions using information taken from some of his source material, including 'The rebellion in Dublin, April, 1916Link opens in a new window' (Eason & Son, Ltd., Dublin and Belfast), 'The "Sinn Fein" revolt illustratedLink opens in a new window' (Hely's Limited, Dublin), 'Pictures of Dublin after the fighting, June-July 1922Link opens in a new window' (Eason & Son Ltd., Dublin), and 'Old Ireland in pictures: 1916-1922: Two Dublin "Risings" and their consquencesLink opens in a new window' (Wilson Hartnell & Co., Dublin). These four publications have been digitised as part of our online resource From Easter Rising to Civil War: Ireland, 1916-1922Link opens in a new window.
