Today marks the final day of the 1916 executions - James Connolly and Seán MacDiarmada are shot at dawn. To finish our 1916 centenary posts we close with an interview with James Connolly's daughter - Nora Connolly O'Brien. In this extraordinary interview, she talks about her memories of the lead up to the 1916 Rising, cooking breakfast for the signatories of the 1916 proclamation and her last moments with her father.
