        Not 100% sure but don't think so, the blocks to the right of the door aren't there.

          I agree with Dev. As far as I remember Rockbrae House only has one window to the right of the door.
          "Fellow-soldiers of the Irish Republican Army, I have just received a communication from Commandant Pearse calling on us to surrender and you will agree with me that this is the hardest task we have been called upon to perform during this eventful week, but we came into this fight for Irish Independence in obedience to the commands of our higher officers and now in obedience to their wishes we must surrender. I know you would, like myself, prefer to be with our comrades who have already fallen in the fight - we, too, should rather die in this glorious struggle than submit to the enemy." Volunteer Captain Patrick Holahan to 58 of his men at North Brunswick Street, the last group of the Four Courts Garrison to surrender, Sunday 30 April 1916.

                Dundrum War of Independence

                Great pictures Cruisedub.
                Im currently trying to do some research into the War of Independence in South County Dublin and Dundrum would have featured quite prominently in terms of activity back then. The men from Dundrum area were 'A' Coy of the Sixth Battalion IRA and there strength would have numbered around 50. I have the names and ranks of a few local men and was wondering if yourself or Krustybob might have any more info you could share on your relatives or that period if at all possible.
                Kind regards,
                J
