Easter Rising leader Seán Heuston honoured with plaque at Heuston Train Station in Dublin.

The plaque hangs in the booking office at Heuston Station where Seán Heuston had worked as a clerical officer before taking part in the 1916 Rising.

Seán Heuston (1891-1916) was executed by firing squad at Kilmainham Gaol on 8 May 1916 for his part in the Easter Rising.
