OUTNUMBERED

The magnitude of the battle the rebels faced can be judged by the numbers. In Dublin 1467 rebels took on the British Crown Forces who by Saturday, the day of the surrender had just a couple hundred short of 12,000 troops in Dublin. The rebels did not have machine guns or artillery while the British not only had both but Naval fire power from HMY Helga and HMS Glouster and were able to secure Skerries with a sea bourne landing.
