 Last Words Booklet Commemorates Ireland’s Heroes of 1916

Last Words
is an illustrated and edited booklet produced in cooperation with the Irish Government in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rebellion, The Rising, in Dublin, Ireland in 1916.

Based on the personal archives kept by the curator of Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin, it contains black and white photographs of all 16 men executed during The Rising and their last words.

It also contains readings from personal diaries, letters, first-hand recollections and first-hand accounts of family members, friends, wives and the priests who performed the Last Rites of the 16 men executed in the aftermath of this historic event.

The booklet was produced in conjunction with a March 20th commemorative event at the Irish Center in Mt. Airy, “Philadelphia Artists and Actors Remember 1916 in Art & Words.”

The event was made possible by a grant from the Irish Government and Irish American Business Chamber Network, IABCN.

Booklets are $15. To order, email booklet editor Sabina Clarke at sabinapatti@yahoo.com or Tom Walsh, manager of the Irish Center at t.walsh@verizon.net. All proceeds benefit the Irish Center.
