Summary

This morning we have an image of one of the lesser known leaders, Michael Mallin ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Mallin ) of the Easter Rising in 1916. It was requested by one of our contributors, Dún Laoighaire Míchael. ..And it is Dún Laoghaire Micheál ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) who lets us know that Dún Laoghaire rail station ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%c3%ban_Laoghaire_railway_station ) was named after Mallin on the 50th anniversary of his execution (although he wonders whether there was any connection that prompted this specifically). Other contributors, including Niall McAuley ( /photos/gnmcauley/ ) , BeachcomberAustralia ( /photos/beachcomberaustralia/ ) and Bernard Healy ( /photos/bernardhealy/ ) advise that Mallin's son is the last surviving child of any of the participants executed after the Rising in 1916; Fr Joe Mallin is remaining active until very recently ( https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/son-103-seeks-to-vindicate-father-executed-in-easter-rising-1.3124576 ) , at the age of 103......Author: Dublin : Powell Press, 22 Parliament St..Collection: Irish Political Figures Photographic Collection ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Search/Results?&filter[]=hierarchy_top_id: ) ..Date: Range c.1910-1920.
