During the week of the Easter Rising more civilians died as a result of the fighting than British Soldiers or Rebels.

George Alexander Playfair

Playfair George Alexander aged 23. He was born in Canada. He was the older of two sons of the Commanding Officer of the Magazine Fort in the Phoenix Park Dublin. After the Magazine Fort was raided and an attempt was made to blow it up George Playfair was shot as he entered a house in Islandbridge Barracks, he was shot by a Volunteer who believed Playfair was attempting to raise the alarm after the attack on the Magazine Fort. Playfair was shot in the abdomen and died in hospital some nine hours after he was shot.


It is a popular myth that the first causality of the Rising was the 14 year old brother of George Playfair Gerald Playfair. I know there are witness statements and various histories which record this popular myth as fact but Gerald Playfair went on to marry in Canada in 1923.


George Alexander Playfair is buried in the cemetery of what was The Royal Hibernian Military School in the Phoenix Park, the school closed in 1924 the building is now occupied by Saint Maryís Hospital. The inscription on the headstone reads: In Loving memory of ALEC, elder son of Major G R Playfair, Royal Magazine Fort, who lost his life in the Easter Rebellion 1916 Aged 23.

North King Street Massacre

Father and son Thomas and Christopher Hickey were both killed in what became known as North King Street Massacre. As soldiers of the South Staffs regiment attempted to move up North King Street they came under heavy fire from the Rebels and were unable to make any progress. In order not to looses the lives of any more soldiers the soldiers were ordered to make their way up the street by tunnelling through the houses.

The soldiers of the South Staffs spent considerable time breaking through the walls of the houses and by the time they reached the Rebelís position the Rebels had gone. In their frustration at not catching the Rebels the soldiers of the South Staffs turned their anger on the residents of North King Street. 15 men and boys were rounded up and either shot or bayoneted to death.


Two of the victims were buried in Deansgrange.

  • Thomas Hickey, aged 38 of 168 North King Street Dublin.
  • Christopher Hickey, aged 16 of 168 North King Street Dublin.


The other victims of the North King Street massacre were

  • Patrick Bealen, a native of Loon, Castlecomer, County Kilkenny.
  • James Healy
  • Peter Connolly aged 39.
  • Peter J Lawless aged 21.
  • James (Jim) McCarthy.
  • James Finnegan aged 40.
  • Patrick Hoey aged 50.

  • Edward Dunne aged 39

  • John Walsh aged 34

  • Michael Hughes aged 50

  • Michael Nunan aged 34

  • George Ennis aged 51

  • William OíNeill aged 16

  • And possibly John BŪernes aged 50


The following reports are extracts from the inquest into the circumstances of their deaths. The military claimed that the deaths occurred because the soldiers were under sustained attack and considerable stress, claims which were rejected by the inquest jury.


Dr. Louis A. Byrne, City Coroner, in the Morgue on Tuesday, 16th May, conducted inquests on the bodies of Patrick Bealen, aged 30, who had been employed as foreman at Mrs. Mary O'Rourke's licensed house, 177 North King street, Dublin, and James Healy, aged 44, employed as a labourer at Messrs. Jameson's Distillery, Bow street, and residing at Little Green street. The bodies, which bore marks of bullet wounds, had both been disinterred on 10th May in the cellar of 177 North King Street by the sanitary authorities. At the opening of the inquest the previous Friday evidence was heard, and suggestions were made against the military who had been on duty in North King Street. The Coroner then adjourned the further hearing of evidence until Tuesday, and notified the military authorities of the adjourned sitting.


VERDICT OF THE JURY. The Coroner having briefly addressed the jury, the following verdict was returned, we find that the said Patrick Bealen died from shock and haemorrhage, resulting from Bullet wounds inflicted by a soldier or soldiers, in whose custody he was, an unarmed and unoffending prisoner. We consider that the explanation given by the military authorities is very unsatisfactory, and we believe that if the military authorities had any inclination they could produce the officer in charge.


INQUEST ON JAMES HEALY. The adjourned inquest on the body of James Healy, which was also found buried in the cellar of 177 North King Street, was then resumed. The jury returned a verdict in terms similar to that recorded in the case of Bealen.
