Nora Connolly O’Brien Remembers

A wonderful remembrance, of both James Connolly and every-day Irish life in this family.

Lovely memories of days in family life … Emotional memories of her father’s last days.  Poignant memories of the firing squad soldier who suffered from knowing he was part of the execution.  These leave us with a portrait etched in hearts left behind.

(YouTube is an amazing resource.  Thanks to all the contributors who bring us perspectives and people outside our own limited worlds.)
