Little Prints

The idea for my print came to me after some fellow printmakers and I were taken on a walking tour around Dublin to educate us about the events leading up to the 1916 Easter Rising.

This tour was a great help to me, as I have no background in Irish history.

We finished our walk in Moore Street on a bright, blustery afternoon to be told about the fighting, the flying bullets, the wounded men, the call for retreat, the confusion and fear.

It all seemed so improbable and a world away as we wandered down the street through the now bustling fruit and vegetable market.
