#OnThisDay 1916 Pearse surrenders unconditionally bringing an end to the Rising. Elizabeth O’Farrell carried the white flag to General Lowe & all rebel positions. It will be Sunday before all garrisons surrender. O’Farrell’s boots & coat can be seen to Pearse’s right. Controversially, she ‘airbrushed’ out of this photo to make Pearse look less dumpy. Many say that this is indicative of the airbrushing of women from Irish history.
