Scope and content

An image of the interior courtyard area of the Four Courts in Dublin following the attack on the building at the outset of the Civil War. A manuscript caption on the reverse of the print reads ‘Rebel garrison surrenders / Four Courts in flames after great explosion / Picture shows the barricade behind the inside gates after the surrender’. The republican forces occupying the Four Courts, commanded by Rory O’Connor, surrendered after two days of shelling by the National Army (28-30 June 1922).
