LissadellHouse: Here in the silent wood Beauty and Peace join hands at last And all the wars of the world have shrivelled and fallen away For the winds of an Unknown Will are blowing out of the vast And the soul of the world grows one with the lips that pity and pray Eva Gore-Booth

RobertBohan: Connolly was a founder of the Irish trade union movement. The Irish Labour Party sees him as their founder too. Irish independence was conservative after the Rising & embraced a de facto theocracy. As a result both Connolly & Eva Gore-Booth’s views were later ignored.

RobertBohan: Here’s a brief overview of Eva Gore-Booth. Her campaign for LGBTQI rights was air-brushed out of the de facto theocracy. Both she & Connolly were revolutionary in vision, as well as practice, which did not sit with the de facto theocracy.
