"The cricket bat that died for Ireland"
The bat had the misfortune of being on display in the shop front of Elvery’s store on O’Connell Street, then Sackville Street, during the Easter Rising. J.W. Elvery & Co. was Ireland’s oldest sports store, specialising in sporting goods and waterproofed wear, with branches in Dublin, Cork (Patrick Street) and London (Conduit Street). [...] Its location, about one block from the GPO, meant it was in the middle of the cross-fire and general destruction of the main street.
