Tom Clarke: The True Leader of The Easter Rising

Tom Clarke: The True Leader of The Easter Rising

Michael Foy

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

Death held no terrors for Tom Clarke who was to die satisfied in the belief that, with the sight of a tricolour flying over the GPO, he had changed the course of Irish history.

Long overshadowed by fellow republicans Pearse and Connolly, Tom Clarke was the man who made the Easter Rising possible. During an extraordinary life dedicated to Irish freedom he rose from humble origins and endured thirty years of struggle, imprisonment and exile before becoming the master conspirator behind the Easter Rising.

Endowed with charisma and moral ascendancy, he held together a disparate group of associates and they, in turn, recognized his indispensable leadership by insisting that his name alone should have pride of place on the Proclamation of an Irish Republic. It was a gesture that, in a sense, guaranteed Clarke immortality; it also proved to be his death warrant.

Over the course of an extraordinary life dedicated to Irish freedom, Clarke rose from humble beginnings to become a master conspirator whose sacrifice changed the course of our nation's history.
