Buildings and places in (City Hall) area, associated with the Rising of Easter Week 1916.

This is the Upper or Main Gate to Dublin Castle. It was here the initial attack was made and, I believe, the first shot was fired. The Guard Room was behind the railings to the right. On the left was a Pedestrian entrance where an armed member of the D.M.P. was standing. The Gates were open as we approached in extended formation The Pillar on left is portion of side entrance to City Hall.
