Thank you and happy Easter

On Easter Monday 1916 Padraig Pearse read the proclamation declaring the Irish Republic and recognizing that it was, “supported by her exiled children in America”. The British would later execute Pearse and the other leaders, but the proclamation lived on and remains the foundation document of Irish Republicanism.
