Con Colbert: 16lives (16Lives) free pdf Con Colbert is one of the lesser-known Rising leaders. A romantic patriot, he envisaged independent Ireland as a Gaelic utopia. From a farming background in west Limerick, he moved to Dublin in his early teens and worked as a junior clerk in a bakery. He captained the first troop of Na Fianna Eireann, the republican scouting movement. Also a member of the Gaelic League, IRB and Irish Volunteers, he dedicated himself selflessly to the pursuit of cultural and political revolution. Even before his execution, he was portrayed as a role model for his fellow rebels. Colbert commanded forces at Watkins' brewery and Jameson's distillery during Easter week. He faced the firing squad at Kilmainham Gaol on 8 May 1916, aged twenty-seven.
