O’Donovan Rossa centenary commemoration

Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa was a famous Cork Fenian, whose death in June 1915 gave rise to one of the most famous of all Irish political funerals, when he was buried in Glasnevin cemetery on 1 August, with Padraig Pearse delivering his celebrated ‘The fools! The fools! The fools!’ graveside oration.
The School of History, in conjunction with many partners and in both a collective sense and through the activities of individual members of staff, is actively engaged with the commemoration.
