The Irish Revolution project

Welcome to the Irish Revolution project website! I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Economics, Trinity College Dublin. Together with my co-author, Professor Battista Severgnini (Copenhagen Business School), I am currently working on a project on the Irish movement of independence (1913-1921).

As part of our project, we are matching the list of Rebels (Easter Rising, War of Independence) with the 1911 Irish Census and we would be delighted if you could help us with this task. If a member of your family took part in the Irish movement of independence (Easter Rising, War of Independence), please contact us ( – we will make sure to add them to our sample.

If you are interested in learning more about our project, have a look at our working paper:

You too can contribute to constructing our data set!
