To celebrate the centenary of the 1916 Rising, Fotofix has produced a unique range of A3 posters – an ideal gift for any history enthusiast.
Pádraig Pearse was an Irish teacher, barrister, poet, writer, nationalist and political activist. He was one of the leaders of the Easter Rising in 1916 and one of 7 signatories on the Irish Proclamation. Following his execution along with fifteen other leaders, Pearse came to be seen by many as the embodiment of the rebellion. This poster shows a quote by Pádraig Pearse as part of his graveside oration at the funeral of Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa in August 1915.
“Life springs from death; and from the graves of patriot men and women spring living nations.”
The poster comes with a short biography and is printed to the highest quality. Posters can be posted internationally and are normally dispatched within 1-3 days if in stock.
