... And Others
Please Note: Because this site focuses on Michael Collins and because it would be very difficult for me to compile all of the information available on everyone who participated in the Rising, I am only able to offer brief descriptions on the others who were executed. I do not mean to leave anyone out or overlook anyone; unfortunately, I am pressed for time and web space and must therefore consolidate information.
Edward Daly- a Commandant of the Irish Volunteers, 25 when he participated in the Rising. He was in charge of the Four Courts and the west area around the General Post Office.
Michael O’Hanrahan- the Quartermaster of the Irish Volunteers and Thomas MacDonagh’s next in command during the Rising.
William Pearse- Patrick Pearse’s (younger) brother. Patrick described him as a loyal friend above all others.
