We Will Rise Again

“Empires fall and tyrannies perish.” In the March 25th, 1916 edition of the Workers’ Republic, a month before the rising, James Connolly took heart from “the magnificent parades of Volunteers under arms, the overflowing meetings, the joyous abandon of the Irish gatherings of all descriptions, and above all the exultant rebel note everywhere manifest” to predict that “we will rise again”. Lasair Dhearg stencil on Northumberland Street below the D Coy hoarding.
