Following his release in September 1915, he joined the secret Military Committee of the IRB, which was responsible for planning the rising. Indeed Mac Diarmada and Clarke were the people most responsible for it. Due to his disability, Mac Diarmada took little part in the fighting of Easter week, but was stationed at the headquarters in the General Post Office. Following the surrender, he nearly escaped execution by blending in with the large body of prisoners. He was eventually recognised by Daniel Hoey of G Division. Following a court-martial on 9 May, Mac Diarmada was executed by firing squad on 12 May at the age of 33.
In order to prevent the further slaughter of Dublin citizens, and in the hope of saving the lives of our followers now surrounded and hopelessly outnumbered, the members of the Provisional Government present at Headquarters have agreed to an unconditional surrender, and the Commandants of the various districts in the City and country will order their commands to lay down arms.
Sean MacDermott was sent for. He addressed the men and said to them that they would probably only get a few years in prison as the British would only shoot the Leaders.
Sean MacDermott was tried by Court Martial at Richmond Barracks. He was then transferred to Kilmainham Jail where he received his sentence of death. He was shot dead by firing squad in Kilmainham Jail at dawn on 12 May 1916. His body was dumped in the pit in Arbour Hill and covered in quick lime.
