ON THIS DAY: 12TH SEPTEMBER 1919

Dáil Éireann was declared illegal by the British Parliament when Sinn Féin TDs refused to sit in Westminister and set up their own parliament in Dublin, Dáil Éireann

The British authorities called it a ‘dangerous assembly, because of this the first Dáil had to meet in secret at different locations.

A variety of premises were covertly rented around central Dublin – and in total more than 80 such locations were used by the First Dáil. Very few of them were uncovered by Dublin Castle, although there were some narrow shaves.
