Irish revolutionary nationalists rose up against British rule a hundred years ago, in an event of world-historic significance.
In the repression that followed, 16 people were executed, including all seven signatories of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic, whose reading by Pádraic Pearse had signaled the start of the rising. Fourteen were executed in the stone cutter’s yard of Dublin’s Kilmainham jail, the last being the working-class leader James Connolly, who had to be strapped to a chair as the wounds he had sustained in the fighting prevented him from standing. Additionally, Thomas Kent was executed in Cork and Sir Roger Casement was hanged in London.
