Exhibition Grand Opening
Labor and Dignity: James Connolly in America An Exhibition
Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 1532 Wauwatosa Ave., Milwaukee
James Connolly, one of Ireland's national icons, spent considerable time in the United States, where he was involved in the labor movement. These experiences influenced his life back in Ireland, particularly during the Dublin Lockout (1913), and the Easter Rising (1916). He was shot by firing squad on May 12, 1916 for his part in the rebellion. While only 47 years old, he had led a very full life, and was dedicated to Ireland and to eliminating poverty everywhere.
Please join the Center for Celtic Studies, the Consulate General of Ireland, and the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center in welcoming the opening of the James Connolly exhibition.
