The Corrs

Nell (l) and Elizabeth (r) Corr from 107 Ormeau Road joined Cumann na mBan in 1915 and travelled to Dublin in 1916 (with Nora Connolly, Ina Connolly, Bridie Farrell, Lizie Allen, Kathleen Murphy, and another girl called O’Neill (Treason Felony)) to serve as messengers in the preparations for April’s Easter Rising. They were in Liberty Hall (shown in the detail above) on the morning of the rising before heading north. Brother George, on the other hand, died at the Somme as a soldier in the Australian infantry, while another brother, Charles, fought in WWI with the Canadian Expeditionary Force. They are pictured on the left-hand side of the mural. (BBCBBC video) There are two images of the work in-progress at the bottom of the post.
Elizabeth’s account of Easter Sunday and Monday is available at the Bureau Of Military History.

    Hello,

    There’s no location for this mural and no way to identify the street. Could you give it ?
