James Connolly

June 5, 1868 James Connolly was born in Scotland.  He founded the Irish Citizen Army and was asked by Patrick Pearse to assist in the 1916 Rising.  In a statement to his daughter on the eve of his execution he expressed his belief that Britain did not ever have a right to Ireland and thanked God that thousands of men and women were willing to die to attest to that belief.
