"Birth of the Irish Republic" from the wonderful painting by Walter Paget depicting the GPO during the British onslaught. The painting now hangs in The GPO, a reminder of the bravery and courage of those men and women who took up their positions on Easter Monday 24 April 1916 in an effort for Ireland's Independence.
At the height of the shelling James Connolly lies wounded, Pádraig Pearse and Tom Clarke can be seen marshaling their forces as they face impossible odds. Seven days of glorious hell followed by court-martial and execution for its brave leaders as they paid the ultimate price. This visual artistic representation is a must for any collection.
Each of the antique prints in our archive have been digitally enhanced and are as perfect as possible taking into consideration the age of the original. We have also added a subtle 'aged look' to each print which adds an extra aura of authenticity and creates a stunning atmosphere when framed.
We are delighted to be able to present these fascinating rarities of old Ireland for you to own.
We look forward to helping you create your own collection that can be treasured and admired by your family for many generations to come!
