    Interesting read there.
    A peculiar prescience to this quote from Connolly:

    After Ireland is free, says the patriot who won’t touch Socialism, we will protect all classes, and if you won’t pay your rent you will be evicted same as now. But the evicting party, under command of the sheriff, will wear green uniforms and the Harp without the Crown, and the warrant turning you out on the roadside will be stamped with the arms of the Irish Republic.
    In case this all goes pear-shaped, I'll bid you adieu

    I got thrown out of that pub once if I remember correctly so you could say I had a battle of my own there.

    I thought Connolly lived on Pimlico?
    Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men. For though the world has stood up and stopped the bastard, the (female dog) that bore him is in heat again. Bertolt Brecht

    He lived in Pimlico too asaik, Charlemont Street was his first address in Dublin.
