Never At Peace

Words from Padraig Pearse’s oration at the funeral of O’Donovan Rossa in 1915 are featured in this mural at the bottom of Brompton Park, in Ardoyne. It ends …
“They think that they have pacified Ireland. They think that they have purchased half of us and intimidated the other half. They think that they have foreseen everything, think that they have provided against everything; but the fools, the fools, the fools! — they have left us our Fenian dead, and while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace.”
