Commemorations marking the centenary of the Rising take place


“The wise have pitied the fool that hath striven to give a life
In the world of time and space among the bulks of actual things,
To dream that was dreamed in the heart, and that only the heart could hold.
Oh wise men, riddle me this: What if the dream come true?”
― Pádraig Pearse

“The cause of labour is the cause of Ireland, the cause of Ireland is the cause of labour.”
―James Connolly

I am a computer dinosaur and can’t provide a link, but it can be found on YouTube.
