A memorial dedicated to the memory of the Edentubber Martyrs, who lost their lives in an explosion during the IRA's Border Campaign, and "to those in every generation who played their part in the struggle for Irish Freedom" is to be unveiled in Enniscorthy, County Wexford, next month.

I was enjoying my Saturday morning. The sun was streaming in through the window and a whole day of nothing to do was stretching before me.

Remembering the Past: Michael O'Rahilly

22 April 2010

Michael O'Rahilly had the unique distinction of being an Irish Volunteer leader who opposed the idea of a Rising in 1916 and initially tried to stop it but who then played his part once the fight began and, at the end of Easter Week, gave his life for Irish freedom. Free article
