Historic poster seen on the streets of Dublin in 1913 calling for men to join the Irish Volunteers. This was a response to the formation of the Ulster Volunteers in 1912. The aim was “to secure and maintain the rights and liberties common to the whole people of Ireland”. The Volunteers went on to form the Irish Rebublican Army so effectively this poster reflects the beginning of the IRA in Ireland.
Óglaigh na hÉireann is an Irish language idiom that can be translated variously as Soldiers of Ireland, Warriors of Ireland, Volunteers of Ireland or Irish Volunteers. Óglaigh na hÉireann is now the name of the Irish Defence Forces.
