  11. "To subvert the tyranny of our execrable government, to break the connection with England, the never-failing source of all our political evils and to assert the independence of my country- these were my objectives. To unite the whole people of Ireland, to abolish the memory of all past dissensions, and to substitute the common name of Irishman in place of the denominations of Protestant, Catholic and Dissenter - these were my means."- Theobald Wolfe Tone “Our freedom must be had at all hazards. If the men of property will not help us they must fall; we will free ourselves by the aid of that large and respectable class of the community - the men of no property.” - Theobald Wolfe Tone

  15. Weary men, what reap ye? Golden corn for the stranger.What sow ye? Human corpses that wait for the avenger.Fainting forms, Hunger—stricken, what see you in the offingStately ships to bear our food away, amid the stranger's scoffing. There's a proud array of soldiers—what do they round your door?They guard our master's granaries from the thin hands of the poor.Pale mothers, wherefore weeping? 'Would to God that we were dead—Our children swoon before us, and we cannot give them bread. Extract from a poem by Jane Francesca Agnes

  18. By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl callingMichael, they are taking you away,For you stole Trevelyan's corn,So the young might see the morn.Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.Low lie the fields of AthenryWhere once we watched the small free birds flyOur love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to singIt's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry.By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man callingNothing matters, Mary, when you're freeAgainst the famine and the Crown,I rebelled, they cut me down.Now you must raise our child with dignity.
