Over 200 women participated in the Easter Rising, and were active in every major outpost in Dublin city (except Boland's Mill, under the command of Emaonn DeValera). A large contingent of Citizen Army women were present at the City Hall and Stephen's Green garrisons. Winnie Carney, Julia Grenan and Elizabeth O'Farrell stayed with the leaders of the Rising until the very end, and O'Farrell was asked to deliver the surrender note to the British forces. From 'Guns & Chiffon'.
