This website has its origins in the Custom House Commemoration Group which came together to revive the annual commemoration ceremony and remember those who took part in the historic Burning of the Dublin Custom House on Wednesday, 25 May 1921.

The Group is strictly non-political.

In addition to the annual commemoration, we are interested in researching and learning more about all aspects of the event and, in particular, the stories of those who were involved in any way.

This site has been developed to facilitate these interests and to encourage further research. We hope it will evolve over time to become a definitive source for anyone with an interest in the Burning.

If you have something you’d like to contribute or if you are looking for further information please get in touch through the contact section on this page or via our Facebook page. We will be delighted to learn more, or help.
