Irish Rising Leaders in Dublin, Ireland

This memorial called “Remembering the Rising” celebrates the centennial of the Irish Rising in 1916. Illustrated are seven leaders of the insurrection and the signers of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Patrick Pearse, a member of the Military Council for the Irish Republican Brotherhood, read the inflammatory and treasonous document in front of the post office. He also called for a truce after the intense battle during the Easter Rising. James Connolly led the Irish Citizen Army. Thomas Clarke, another IRB member, was considered to be the match that sparked the fighting. These men, along with thirteen other leaders of the rebellion, were executed by the British for their crimes.
