Eyewitness to Irish History free pdf Ollamh Fodhla, fierce in valour, Marked out the Scholar's Rampart, The first mighty king with grace Who convened the Festival of Tara. Fifty years, it was tuneful fame, Was he in the High Kingship over Ireland So that from him, with fortunate freedom, Ulaidh [Ulster] received its name. He died a natural death within his capital. Lebor Gabala Erenn (Book of Invasions) "I have often said, and written, it is Famine which must consume them (the Irish)- our swords and other endeavours work not that speedy effect which is expected, for their overthrow." Lord Arthur Chichester, Lord Deputy, November 22, 1601 Written to Lord Burghley, chief adviser to Queen Elizabeth I "In O'Connell Street large groups of people were gathered together. From the flagstaff pole on top of the General Post Office, the GPO, floated a new flag, a tricolour one of green, white and orange, the colours running out from the mast. What's it all about?' I asked a man who stood near me, a scowl on his face. Those boyhoes, [sic] the Volunteers, have seized the Post Office. They want nothing less than a Republic,' he laughed scornfully. They've killed some Lancers- but they'll soon run away when the soldiers come.' " Ernie O'Malley On Another Man's Wound, London, 1936
