We Shall Rise Again.

James Connolly (1868–1916) was an Irish republican and socialist leader. He was executed by a British firing squad because of his leadership role in the Easter Rising of 1916. Connolly was the author of many books and articles, becoming one of the leading revolutionary theorists of his time. Before his death, following the failure of the rising, he exclaimed  "We shall rise again."

The Wild Goose Studio has cast a number of pieces to commemorate the 1916 Rising and the resulting independance.. This being one of them, the others are The Proclamation, Give Us The Future and The GPO
