I looked at that 493 page document previously, btw.Poses a good question: why didn't you attempt an answer?
The Easter Week casualty lists are quite well known, though none is ever likely to be thoroughly comprehensive.
The Glasnevin Trust, working from interment records, comes up with 485 deaths: 126 Crown forces, 82 Volunteers, 17 RIC and constabulary — and 260 civilians.
That 485 seems to be the low end of other counts, which generally increase further civilian casualties. In any case, being a Moore Street costermonger seems far more likely to make one a victim than the lads and lasses holed up in their granite redoubt.
Joe Duffy took on the thirty known children killed in Easter Week (nine of them girls).
There is not a single rebel female listed killed, based on firstnames.
Perhaps this was not the female led, female staffed rebellion supported by a few feminist men that the RTE coverage would have you believe...
