General Maxwell writes:

Fonsie Mealy Auctioneers (Castlecomer) held its Centenary Sale in The Gresham Hotel [Dublin 1] this afternoon, where an original copy of the Proclamation sold for €150,000 hammer price. A hundred years ago they were printing them ready for use.

    Interesting fact, the printing of this was treasonous so it had to be done late at night in secret on the eve of the rising.
    If you look closely you will see the R’s and C’s in IRISH REPUBLIC and POBHLACT NA H’EIREANN arent actually R’s and C’s. they were missing these two letters so they had to hack them together using the P and O letters on the printing press.

    The very same kind of people who were critical of the Rebellion are now making money out of its memorabilia.

    Gombeenism.
