Richard William FitzPatrick served as an Assistant Librarian at Marsh’s Library for one year, but resigned shortly after the Easter Rising to join the British army.
As a student at Trinity College, he had been a member of the Officer Training Corps, and helped to defend the campus against the rebels during the Easter Rising.
