Little Prints


Constance Short

Many  hastily written notes were written between the garrisons and delivered by woman volunteers who for decades remained anonymous. This piece is a reflection of that. These brave women volunteers risked their lives ducking British bullets in keeping these lines of communication open.

None braver than Sheila Grennan and Elizabeth O Farrell who were with Padraig Pearse in the GPO. This piece is dedicated to them and especially Elizabeth who braved out with the flag of surrender on Saturday 27th April 1916.
