The year 1916 is known for one event in Irish history – the Easter Rising. However as that fateful weekend approached most Dubliners were oblivious to the fact that their city stood on the threshold of history. This podcast focuses on three of those Dubliners, and takes look around their city on the eve of the rising, revealing what the city looked like, sounded like and even smelled like!


This podcast is a journey into the houses of the most wealthy citizens to the homes of those struggling at the margins. We will move from prisons to workhouses and garner a sense of what Dublin was like on the eve of the most famous chapter in its long history.
