    Children killed in the 1916 Rising

    Children killed in the 1916 Rising

    The majority of people who were killed during the 1916 Easter Rising were civilians. Of the 450 people who died, more than half were civilian adults and children. Over the years, the stories of the children who died have remained largely invisible and even the numbers who lost their lives have been inconclusive. But now, following extensive research, broadcaster, Joe Duffy believes that children account for more than 10% of civilian fatalities. Joe joined Myles on the programme to talk about how he went about compiling the first ever comprehensive list of children killed during Easter Week 1916.
