1916 in Letters

James Connolly

To commemorate the 1916 Easter Rising, Visual Correspondence has included letter collections by several of the signatories of the Proclamation, as well as some other notable figures.  James Connolly, Eamonn Céannt (and his family), Padraig Pearse, and Seán MacDiarmada all feature, as do Roger Casement, W. B. Yeats, Eamon de Valera, John Millington Synge and other figures central to cultural and revolutionary life at that tumultuous time.  See what you can discover.
