Product description

Easter Week, 1916. Over two thousand brave Irish Volunteers take on the mighty British Empire in the Easter Rising, fighting for freedom from British rule. They are led by Pádraig Pearse: a school principal, barrister and poet. This is the true story of the leader of the Easter Rising, who led his forces into battle against one of the most powerful armies in the world. Even though Pearse and his Volunteers were defeated, and Pearse was shot by a firing squad, his name will be remembered for all time…

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