I did this illustration of James Connolly, leader of the Irish Citizen Army, in 1916. He was born in Edinburgh Scotland and later served in the British army in Ireland where he deserted and returned home. He moved to Dublin in 1895 with his wife. He fought in the General Post Office in Sackville Street (O’Connell Street) during the rebellion and wounded in the ankle was carried to Moore Street where the rebels surrendered. His execution changed the attitude of the Irish people towards British rule.
