Wexford Volunteers Take Enniscorthy Town Hall 1916

#OnThisDay 1916 Over 100 Volunteers captured the town hall in Enniscorthy & surrounded the RIC barracks. Some shots are fired but it becomes an almost bloodless standoff. Unlike in Dublin, locals supported the Vols. They were the last garrison to surrender.
