Video: Easter Rising 1916 personal accounts
THIS man was at Fairyhouse racecourse on Easter Monday 1916 and was interviewed for RTE television in 1962, during which he described a near miss with a bullet as he returned to the city.
"When I went into Dublin I was halted at the barricade and could go no further. Because if you did go any further, you could run the risk of a sniper. You'd be shot. And a bullet did whiz by me forehead at the Broadstone."
