Business as Usual - GPO Staff in 1916




Previous | Back | Next 



This new and expanded edition of Stephen Ferguson’s book on the role and influence of the Post Office on the 1916 Rising, Business as Usual – GPO Staff in 1916, examines the Rising from the unique perspective of the men and women who worked for the GPO. Drawing on Post Office and other archives in Dublin and London, he paints a picture of the political sympathies, the sense of duty and the sheer pace and excitement that motivated GPO staff in 1916. Eye-witness accounts and photographs taken within days of the end of the rebellion, provide a fresh and vivid portrait of the time and highlight the crucial importance of the Post Office in the event which has defined Irish history for close to a century. 

Stephen Ferguson is Assistant Secretary of An Post and Curator of the An Post Museum in the GPO.
