SÉ WALL POST BOX [I CANNOT REMEMBER SEEING AN SÉ WALL BOX BEFORE]-159076

SÉ WALL POST BOX [I CANNOT REMEMBER SEEING AN SÉ WALL BOX BEFORE]-159076 by William Murphy Via Flickr: Following Irish independence in 1922, existing British pillar boxes were retained, and when the Irish Free State left the Commonwealth following the declaration of the Republic of Ireland in 1949 existing pillar and wall boxes were then painted green. Many of these are extant around the country, retaining the monogram of the monarch who reigned at the time of the box's installation. The Department of Posts and Telegraphs continued installing similar pillar boxes and wall boxes, but with the initials SÉ (for Saorstát Éireann), a harp or the P & T logo, instead of a monarch's monogram. Since 1984 An Post, the current Irish postal administration, use the An Post logo to adorn their posting boxes.

May 1st 1916, Aftermath Of The Easter Rising The fighting had ended on April 30th, much of Dublin city centre was in ruins, and General Maxwell declared martial law across the country. The rising was very unpopular with the people of Dublin who felt it was a stab in the back to those Irishmen fighting for the British Army in WW1. Even though Sinn Fein played no official part in the rising, the rebellion was labelled as the 'Sinn Fein Rebellion' and anyone even remotely connected to the party was liable for arrest. Some 3,500 people, more than twice the amount that had taken part in the rising were arrested immediately as Maxwell was determined to clamp down on anyone connected to Irish Republicanism. Most of those arrested were brought to Richmond Barracks in Inchicore, which was now used as a holding centre for over 3,000 suspected rebels, until they were released or sent to prison camps in England, Wales and Ireland. It was also in Richmond Barracks that G-Divison of Dublin castle could identify the leaders of the rising to the British. There are many accounts of groups of suspected rebels being brought into the big hall and plainclothes detectives standing in the balcony area picking out who they believed were the leaders of the rising so they could be quickly court-martialed. — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/3vC1e7F

April 30th 1916, End Of The Easter Rising. Although the order to surrender, ending the 1916 rising, had been made the previous day, not all rebel-held positions had been notified. At 10 am on Sunday, April 30th, the order to surrender reached Stephen's Green, Boland's Mill & Jacobs biscuit factory. De Valera, however, decides that he does not take orders from a prisoner and with Pearse now in captivity, he now takes orders from Commandant MacDonagh. MacDonagh also states that the surrender order is invalid as Pearse is a prisoner although he agrees to meet with General Lowe to parley Although those on North Brunswick had agreed to a ceasefire yesterday, they would not yet believe that a surrender warrant had been issued. Two priests are allowed access to Pearse in order to acquire an official surrender statement. MacDonagh meets with Lowe and a further surrender deal is reached with a truce in place until 3 pm. An exhausted O’Farrell is now travelling around the city conveying MacDonagh’s new surrender order to the Volunteers. Some are angry with the order believing they should fight until the end. The Irish Citizen Army at Stephen’s Green surrendered around midday and 120 men and women marched from the Green. At 3.30, Jacob’s Garrison also marches into the custody of the enemy. It wouldn’t be until after 3 pm that the Volunteers in the South Dublin Union would also lay down their arms. Although they comply with the order, they are unhappy and unable to understand why the fight does not continue. From 4.30pm, the Volunteers within the grounds of the Rotunda are marched to Inchicore and with Dublin citizens now emerging from their shelter to view the destruction of the city, the rebels are heckled as they make their way there. The opposite occurs as Vice-Commandant O’Connor leads the 3rd Battalion from Boland’s Bakery. Crowds cheer and offer their support for the rebels. By 6 pm, the fighting had ended. There were at least 485 deaths, 50% of whom were civilians. In total, 1,350 people lie dead or wounded and 3,430 men and 79 women have been arrested by the British. — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/3t65LOn
