Rare photo of the "Irish Republic" flag flying over the GPO in place of the Union Jack during the Easter Rising.

This Irish Republic flag was made by Mary Shannon at the headquarters of the Irish Citizen Army in Liberty Hall. Captured by British troops after the surrender of the rebels, it was returned to Ireland by the British Government in 1966. It is now on display in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.
