"after passing numerous sentries and
riding over heaps of broken glass we got to the Morgue. There was
Michael stretched out on a stand. He was even honoured there, all the
others were lying on the ground and he did look fine, Nora. His head
thrown back, he had a very high forehead and he looked as brave and
peaceful as ever a warrior sculpted in marble on a tomb."
- Nell describes identifying the body of her brother The O'Rahilly after the 1916 Rising [P106/384].

I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
