The people of the 1916 rising were everyday people (mostly). They were not ‘military’ men and women. The blogs about these people will not focus as much on what they did for the revolution as much as where they came from and what they did outside of the revolution.

Here is a list of people heavily involved with the 1916 Rising:

Michael Collins
Éamon de Valera
James Connolly
Gen. John Maxwell
Patrick Pearse
Thomas Clarke
Sean Mac Dermott
Constance Markievicz
Joseph Mary Plunkett
Eamonn Ceannt
Thomas MacDonagh
Elizabeth O’Farrell

*They will be linked to a specific blog post for each of them.
