In 1916, when Padraic Pearse, Irish republican and leader of the ‘Easter Rising’, decided to surrender, he asked midwife Elizabeth O’Farrell to make the perilous walk to deliver his message to the British army. Setting off down a Dublin street where some of the dead still held white flags in their hands, Elizabeth O’Farrell was watched from the door by Julia Grenan, referred to in documents as her ‘friend and lifelong companion’. This is the story of those days.
