Dublin Castle
The Citizen Army, under John Connelly, attacked Dublin Castle shortly after noon on 24 April 1916 and launched an assault on the Guardroom. For some reason, Connelly did not press his takeover of the Castle, but instead sent parties of men to occupy nearby businesses and City Hall. Had he realized that fewer than twenty-five soldiers occupied the Castle, his decision might have been different.
