Product description

The inspiring story of Easter Rising hero James Connolly: leader of the Irish Citizen Army. Growing up in terrible poverty in Scotland, James made it his life’s mission to fight for workers’ rights. He moved to Dublin and grew to love it, saying that the voices of children playing on the streets there was music to his ears. But when Connolly realised that freedom from British rule could give Irish workers a better life, his path was set. The British wouldn’t leave Ireland without a struggle. There was only one option: to stand up and fight…

  • The inspiring true story of a celebrated Irish rebel
  • Clearly explains Connolly’s role in the Easter Rising
  • Part of the popular Poolbeg In a Nutshell series
  • Combines simple text with appealing line artwork
