This morning.

Buswells Hotel, Dublin.

Artist Robert Ballagh (left), and James Connolly‘s great grandson, James Connolly Heron (right), presenting Stephen Rea, with a Jim Fitzpatrick limited edition print of the Scotland-born socialist martry as part of ‘Reclaim the Vision of 1916’.

Reclaim the Vision of 1916 is a group of artists, academics, trade unionists, community activists, journalists and other interested citizens who believe Ireland can be “reinvigorated by the ideals of the signatories of the Proclamation”.

Also that there can be no “equivalence between those who died in the struggle to create an Irish Republic and those who perished in defence of the British Empire”.

Uh oh.
