Let Us Rise


“The great only appear great because we are on our knees – let us rise”. The quote – also used by Jim Larkin – appeared in Connolly’s article on Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee visit to Ireland. His portrait is flanked by the tricolour and the starry plough. “Sponsored by trade union group”, painted by Digger. Beechmount Avenue, Belfast.
