About this event

The story of the War of Independence in Dublin tends to be dominated by the activities of Michael Collins' Squad, or the Active Service Unit. However, every one of the city battalions played their part.

In this talk, historian Liz Gillis will discuss the actions of the 3rd Battalion and the role they played in the fight for Irish freedom in and around the Ringsend area.

Liz Gillis is the author of 'Women of the Irish Revolution', 'Revolution in Dublin' and 'The Fall of Dublin'. She has a degree in Irish History and works as a Curatorial Assistant in RTÉ. She has worked as a researcher on numerous publications, participated in many conferences focusing on the Irish revolution and has also developed a 'Revolutionary' walking tour of her native Liberties. Liz is co-organiser of the annual conference on the burning of the Custom House in 1921.
