Kilmainham Gaol

Kilmainham Gaol
Made by fitzinthehome
Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin was built in 1796 and finally saw its last prisoners released in 1920's. Although never intended as a gaol for political prisioners, the gaol has figured prominently in the struggle for Irish Independence with many of the most important figures in Irish history of it's era being incarcerated in it. The rebellious period of 1798 to 1803 saw it's cells being filled with captured rebels and their leaders while they awaited death or transportation. Notable inmates of this period included Henry Joy McCracken, James Napper Tandy, Robert Emmet. Later periods of rebellion in the mid 19th century saw the gaol welcome such as Thomas Meagher, William Smith O'Brien and Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa. In the latter part of the 19th century as the struggle for indepenence moved towards a more political phase politicians such as Charles stewart Parnell, John Dillon and Michael Davitt spend time within its walls. Arguably the most prominent part it played in Irish history was when the leaders of the 1916 rebellion were held there prior to their executionn by firing squad in the prisons stonebreakes yard. The execution of 15 men under the martial law that been imposed following the rebellion was a key factor in turning public opinion in favour of the rebellion which had initially been unpopular amongst the majority of the population. In a huge twist of irony the last prisioners held in the prison were the combatants on the losing republican side of the Civil War that followed independence, some of whom were executed there. In perhaps the strangest irony of the Kilmainham story amongst the the Civil War prisoners was Grace Gifford Plunkett who had marrried Jospeh Mary Plunkett in the prison chapel on the eve of his execution in 1916. The last prisoner released was Eamon De Valera, a 1916 veteran, who subsequently became Taoiseach (PM) and later President of the Republic of Ireland During its lifetime the prison underwent many additions and changes. What is pictured here is the East Wing which was opened in 1864 as part of Victorian prision reform. The three storied wing has been used as a filming location in numerous movies such as The Italian Job, Michael Collins and In the Name of the Father. After its closure the prison fell into disrepair and its demolitiion was even considered in the 1940's. A dedicated group of volunteers however working throughout the 50's and 60's restored the gaol, leading eventually to its position today as an important museum and tourist attraction in Dublin.

Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin, Ireland

Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin, Ireland
Made by Michelle in Ireland
Kilmainham Gaol (Irish: PrĂ­osĂşn Chill Mhaighneann) is a former prison, located in Inchicore in Dublin, which is now a museum. It has been run since the mid-1980's by the Office of Public Works (O.P.W.), an Irish Government agency. Kilmainham Gaol has played an important part in Irish history, as many leaders of Irish rebellions were imprisoned and some executed in the jail. The jail has also been used as a set for several films. Including In The Name Of The Father When it was first built in 1796, Kilmainham Gaol was called the 'New Gaol' to distinguish it from the old jail it was intended to replace - a noisome dungeon, just a few hundred metres from the present site. It was officially called the County of Dublin Gaol, and was originally run by the Grand Jury for County Dublin. Over the 140 years it served as a prison, its cells held many of the most famous people involved in the campaign for Irish independence. The leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising were held and executed here. Children were sometimes arrested for petty theft (also the case in UK), the youngest said to be a seven year-old boy[citation needed], while many of the adult prisoners were deported to Australia. There was no segregation of prisoners; men women and children were incarcerated up to 9 in each cell, with only a single candle for light and heat, most of their time was spent in the cold and the dark. Kilmainham Gaol was abandoned as a jail in 1924, by the government of the new Irish Free State. Following lengthy restoration, it now houses a museum on the history of Irish nationalism and offers guided tours of the building. i got this info off wikipedia...god bless wikipedia

When it was first built in 1796, Kilmainham Gaol was called the 'New Gaol' to distinguish it from the old gaol it was intended to replace - a noisome dungeon, just a few hundred yards from the present site. It was officially called the County of Dublin Gaol, and was originally run by the Grand Jury for County Dublin. Over the 128 years it served as a prison, its cells held many of the most famous people involved in the campaign for Irish independence. The British imprisoned and executed the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising here. Patrick Henry Pearse (also known as Pádraig Pearse; Irish: Pádraig Anraí Mac Piarais; An Piarsach; 10 November 1879 – 3 May 1916) was an Irish teacher, barrister, poet, writer, nationalist and political activist who was one of the leaders of the Easter Rising in 1916. He was declared President of the Provisional Government of the Irish Republic in one of the bulletins issued by the Rising's leaders, a status that was however disputed by others associated with the rebellion both then and subsequently. Following the collapse of the Rising and the execution of Pearse, along with his brother (Willie Pearse) and fourteen other leaders, Pearse came to be seen by many as the embodiment of the rebellion. upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e8/Patrick_Pears...

A picture taken inside CIE's Inchicore Works (Ireland) during an open day many years ago. Besides the expected rail interest, there were many road transport exhibits, though I don't think this part of the yard had been intended for public perusal. Various oddities were noted like this Ergomatic cabbed Leyland Beaver tractor unit... just guessing but it may have seen use as a driver trainer! Looking closely at the picture it seems some of the N/S front wheel studs are missing, still, there are enough left to hold it all together;-) On the left is one of a huge number of front engined Volvo B57s imported from Singapore to replace elderly buses in the school fleet. Also present, though I can't find the negative, was a cut n shut Atlantean chassis.

BEWARE OF THE RISEN PEOPLE - YE THAT HAVE HARRIED AND HELD, YE THAT HAVE BULLIED AND BRIBED . Words worth remembering, especially in light of recent events. Many members of the Irish rebellion were held and then executed in Kilmainham jail. Their actions and subsequent treatment helped to bring about Irish independence. To me, the unpleasant colours of the image echoes the uglyness of what went on in this jail. The picture was taken on a tour of the jail in 2007. If you like the image, please let me know why. Helpful suggestions are always welcome.

Preserved CIE D class Leyland Atlantean/MSL body (built by CIE at Spa Road Inchicore Dublin) D464 is seen on route 19 as part of a farewell tour covering the whole route, significantly the first D class buses which entered service in 1966 started life on the 19 so it was fitting that on the last day the same class should cover the ground. The axing of the 19 was resisted by local communities but Dublin Bus went ahead with changes which are part of a network review of all routes in different sectors of the city.

Stairs in the inner court of Kilmainham Goal. All cells are arranged so that they can be overviewed by a handful of wardens. This part of the prison is Victorian. Among the prisoners were members of the Easter rising. Now that the jail has been converted to a museum, this area has been used by groups such as U2 to record some of their songs.

Ah I like this photo of Pete. He's a slightly zany character and some of his personality has been caught in this photo. I had popped 'round to his house one day to give him a few tips as he was dusting down an old film camera before heading off on holidays.
