I will be returning to the progress of Sinn Fein tomorrow but in the meantime, if anyone can put up pictures, songs etc from the era please do......to set the scene, like........hard to find songs from 1917 that aren't to do with the war though.......

There are more self portraits and photographs of Constance Georgine (just call me Madame) Markievicz than any other prominent individual of the time.
A glory hunter if ever there was.....

No not a fan....never was...or will be....she robbed the limelight from people who were far superior...Hobson....Malin and
Chris "Kit" Poole to name a few. And her old man having bought his title like yid buy a new hat.....talk about fake....?.

A self promoting egotist at every hands turn. The original Glory Hunting Queen....yukkk
