In addition to the human cost, there was extensive property damage during the Easter rising of 1916, most of this was to streets in Dublin's City Centre. This was primarily due to a combination of both artillery fire, and uncontrolled fires. This page uses a comparison of the street listing in the 1914 edition of the Post Office Directory against Thom's directory of 1917 to show details of the individuals and businesses at these addresses, before and just after the Rebellion.

A recreated insurance map, originally issued by the 'Hibernian Fire & General Insurance Co.' was also referenced (see here), this was regenerated from a fragmented version of the original, and shows destroyed and damaged buildings, and includes street numbers and in many cases names of businesses.

To start, click on a named street on the map to the right, or select one of the streets from the links above.

Note : There are a number of inconsistencies between the insurance map and the directory details, these are noted in the listings.

Where address listings show multiple occupants (e.g. 7 Lwr abbey st. shows six separate businesses, 4 Lwr. Sackville St. with 10 businesses), just the primary businesses have been transcribed.
