Shoulder to shoulder inside the GPO
Whether an opinion of the 1916 Rising is that of a brave or foolish event, the sincerity of the participants is rarely in doubt.
Those involved were also from Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, and like Joe Good, from London. He was in the Rising with his friend Michael Collins. He wrote his memoir in 1946 for his 13-year-old son Maurice, who published the book - 'Inside the GPO' - in 1996. It was re-published by O'Brien's Books for this year's 100th anniversary.
Good wrote of Michael Collins' feelings at the Rising's end: "Poor Mick: he had more knowledge - of what had happened and would happen - and had had more hopes of what might have happened, and he had a far greater disappointment than any of us. But I did not know that then."
