P.J. Stephenson and Frank Robbins recount their parts in the events of Easter week 1916. Stephenson was in the Mendicity Institute while Robbins was in St Stephen's Green and the College of Surgeons.

P.J. Stephenson explains how under the command of Sean Hueston he was one of a group of men who occupied the the Mendicity Institute on Usher's Island. Their task was to hold out as long as they could and delay British forces getting to the Four Courts. 

Among Frank Robbins memories told here are meeting Pat Fox whose 18 year old son was killed at St Stephen's Green, and moving the body of the injured Margaret Skinnider who had been shot while attempting to seize the Russell Hotel.
