George Irvine

Biography

A member of the IRB since 1908, George Irvine was attached to B Company in the 4th Dublin Battalion of the Irish Volunteers. Stationed in the South Dublin Union during the Easter Rising, he commanded a group of men in huts at the back of the building. The walls of the huts provided poor cover and, after engaging in a battle with British troops, Irvine surrendered. He was sentenced to death but was ultimately interned until June 1917. He served as Vice Commandant of the No. 1 Dublin Battalion during the War of Independence and fought for the republican side in the early stages of the Civil War before captured by the National Army in July 1922.
