Manacles “Made in Britain” constrain the republican desire for a united Ireland, contrary to the burning GPO and rising phoenix. The close-up image shows the plaque to local (A Company 2nd Battalion) IRA volunteers: Stan Carberry, Frankie Dodds, Paul Fox, Sean Bailey, Paul Marlowe, Tony Campbell. Painted by Mo Chara in Beechmount Avenue. “Fuair siad bás ar son na hÉireann”, “Ireland unfree will never be at peace”.
