The story of George and Margaret Geoghegan. George was a foot soldier in the Easter Rising of 1916 in Dublin who managed to achieve some sort of minor fame for being one of the 84 rebels killed in Easter week. His wife Margaret was left to raise their three children in one of the most notorious slums in Europe. The book also details her interminable correspondence with the Army Pensions Board, seeking to gain redress. Also contains genealogical material of the Geoghegan and Ledwidge families of Dublin.
