Biography

James Morrissey was attached to the 4th Battalion of the Irish Volunteers’ Dublin Brigade and was stationed in the South Dublin Union during the Easter Rising. He was part of a small group led by George Irvine who occupied an outbuilding at the back of the premises. After engaging in a battle with British troops advancing from Mountshannon Road, the group surrendered. Morrissey was court-martialled and sentenced to death on 8th May but this was commuted to three years penal servitude and he was interned until June 1917.
