#Latergram Dublin City Hall has a plaque commemorating the Irish “rebels” who were killed in this building during the Easter Uprising of 1916 while leading the Irish independence movement against the British empire which had been(and continues to) divide and conquer Ireland for hundreds of years. Their “revolution” was a failure in the short-run, but it was a major step in a centuries-long movement that led to Ireland being a free nation. The arc of moral justice is long indeed. Of course, Northern Ireland is still part of the UK and there is progress still to be made over 100+ years later. The plaque, like all public signs Ireland, is in Gaelic Irish and English. The Irish had to fight and die just to keep their language, which was prohibited for centuries by the British. Now it’s an official language of Ireland.
