Life Springs From Death

The new replacement board commemorating the Gibraltar 3 (Mairéad Farrell, Dan McCann and Seán Savage “executed by British crown forces 6th March 1988) uses words from Pearse’s oration at the funeral of O’Donovan Rossa. Not the more common “the fools, the fools …” but “Life springs from death and from the graves of patriot men and women spring living nations” (used previously in Strabane in 1990 – M00860). The board is “dedicated to the memory of Thomas and Edith Haddock”.
Here is the previous board. The border in the image above is from the board before that, which is shown below (M01455).
