Including Emmet Dalton who was awarded the MC and John Redmond from the 16th Irish Division whose contribution was written out of history for many years. Any way the Dublin gig kicked off a couple of months before the Somme gig. The 36th and the 16th would have been sharpening their bayonets getting ready for the big show.No exactly there was about 200'000 who couldn't make the GPO get together as they were prior engaged in Northern France/Southern Belgium.
Anyway where do you get the figure of 200'000 from ? Not disputing it but it seems a little high considering the strengh of each division would have been about 20'000, although I am aware there were Irishmen in other units.
