“Another early clash occurred on the north side of the city. About 3.30pm a party of Volunteers bringing supplies from Fr. Matthew Park, Fairview, to the GPO, came under machine gun fire from the direction of the Great Northern Railway. Some of the party took up defensive positions near Ballybough Bridge, while the remainder conveyed the supplies to the GPO. British infantry advancing towards Annesley Bridge from the Bull Island Training Camp came under heavy fire from republican positions hastily occupied in corner houses on North Strand, in Spring Garden Street and Annesley Place, and in Leinster Avenue.”
