Vol.Edward Dorins
Edward became involved in Republican activities but he and his brother Patrick attended the funeral of Thomas Ashe in Dublin in the autumn of 1917. The Dorins's house was raided by Auxiliaries in February 1921 and he was beaten up and thrown into the Liffey at the Grattan Bridge. He was shot at in the water and eventually managed to climb out of the river at the Butt Bridge. He was treated at Jervis Street Hospital for a week and then had to leave that hospital quickly because of a tip-off that it was to be raided in a search for wounded Republicans. Edward Dorins was an NCO (a sergeant) in E Company, Second Battalion, Dublin Brigade of the IRA. He was killed while attacking a tender full of Auxiliaries in Beresford Place along with Volunteer Daniel Head on 25th. of May, 1921.
