Irish History Forum Discussion:     Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa

The 90th anniversary of the death of the Irish patriot Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa was commemorated in Dublin

Ceremony on 90th anniversary of O'Donovan Rossa's death

Republicans attended the ceremony at his graveside in Glasnevin cemetary.

O'Donovan Rossa, who was born in 1831 in Rosscarbery, Co Cork, was accused of plotting a Fenian Rising in 1865, convicted of treason by the British government and sentenced to penal servitude for life.

He was released in 1871 and exiled to the US where he died in 1915.

His body was brought home for a hero's burial in Ireland where Padraig Pearse gave a famous graveside oration. The Pearse Oration for Rossa contained the lines "The fools the fools the fools, They have left us our Fenian dead And while Ireland
holds these graves Ireland unfree shall never be at peace"
