  • As Pearse stepped out from the shadows of the GPO to read out the Proclamation of the Irish Republic to the citizens of Dublin on Easter Monday, many perceived him and his body of insurgents as little more than tin soldiers. The Easter Rising in 1916 has proven to be the most monumental moment in Irish history. The seven political leaders of the Provisional Government have a compelling tale indifferent to their personal sacrifice. We are left with the myth that they all died in a fight for Irish independence, but to whose perception, Pearse’s prophecy, Clarke’s enmity or Connolly’s socialist concept? “Signatures upon a Proclamation” provides seven informative biographies of the founding fathers of the modern Irish state.
