MAGAZINE FORT 1916 PADDY MCGOWAN

 Paddy McGowan did this picture of the Magazine Fort in the Phoenix Park in acrylic paint. It depicts the sham football match organised by the Volunteers and Na Fianna to distract the guards and raid the fort. It was successful and arms and ammunition were taken away. Explosive charges were laid and the loud bangs heralded the start of the 1916 rebellion.   magazine fort
