James Connolly and Joseph Plunkett led their ragged army of Irish Volunteers and the Irish Citizens Army up Abbey Street across Sackville Street (O'Connell Street) and took over the GPO.

A special recording of this Proclamation is featured in this 3 CD/DVD Anthology - Rebellion, together with narrations of other historical writings from that period, including poems from WB Yeats, Sean O’Casey and Pearse. This Centenary Commemorative Collection features many songs that were sung about Easter 1916 and together with other popular rebel ballads relating to the War of Independence, the Irish Civil War and previous Fenian Risings are featured on this comprehensive Collection. This 3 CD – DVD Anthology gives voice to the debt of passion, righteous anger and shared vision of those who put their Nations freedom first.
