Weapons Of the Easter Rising

1871 Mauser Rifle and Bayonet. Single shot German made rifle which was one of the many which arrived at Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow in 1914. Retained by the Bray volunteers and used by a relative of the donor.

The bayonets often did not fit the rifles and were used for decorative purposes in many cases.

Presented by David Owens at the Wicklow Life 1916 Public Collections Day
