Free Ireland

At the top, a stencilled board reads “Release Mark Prior, Liam Coogan, Jim McCabe, Kev Mulholland – these boys are innocent.” (The “Beechmount Five”. See Greenleft News) At the bottom, Pearse’s famous lines “The fools, the fools, they have left us our Fenian dead and while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace.”
