A stranger in civilian clothes but who knew him by name instructed him to go to Jacob’s.

On arrival at Jacob’s he found the lace already occupied and was posted, with his brother John, to the roof of Barmac Ltd, the building in which Dick McKee had his headquarters. After several hours duty on the roof he was posted to constructing barricades in Blackpitts.

While erecting the barricades in Blackpitts the Volunteers were continually harassed by a hostile crowd who sang ‘English patriotic songs’ and repeatedly pelted the Volunteers with stones. Several men from this crowd approached one of the Volunteers and attempted to disarm him, the Volunteers were forced to defend themselves and during this struggle one of the men from the crowd received serious bayonet wounds. The attempt to build barricades was abandoned and the Volunteers returned to Jacob’s.

With his brother John he was assigned to the garrison defending the ground floor of the Jacob’s building. During the week several members of the Dublin Metropolitan Police, both uniform and plain-clothes, who were on duty in the area were arrested and detained in Jacob’s.

Between 2pm and 3pm on the Wednesday of the Rising, with his brother John, they were selected as part of a party which went to Holles Street and fired several shots in the direction of Mount Street in order to assist the Volunteers engaging the British there. On the return journey they came under heavy machine-gun fire, one of their party being fatally wounded.

On the Sunday of the surrender both Michael and John managed to avoid capture but were arrested on the Tuesday and eventually ended up in Stafford Jail in the UK.
