Four Courts, the seat of Ireland's Judiciary, is situated on the River Liffey. Commandant Edward Daly sent a portion of rebel forces, under Lt. Joseph MacGuinnes, to seize Four Courts on the morning the Rising began. The force of only twenty men marched to the Chancery Place entrance, ordered a policeman to hand over the keys and took control of the building. The rebel force was able to hold the building for almost six days before they were forced to surrender the building and escape.
