James Connolly

James Connolly
(1868—1916)

Socialist and Irish rebel leader

One the most original and influential socialist thinkers of his day. He settled in Ireland and in 1916 led his Irish Citizen Army in the Easter Rising against British rule.
The government crushed the rising and executed its leaders, turning them into martyrs, the wounded Connolly being tied to a chair to be shot by firing squad
