O'Donovan Rossa Funeral Exhibition

At the funeral of O'Donovan Rossa the graveside oration was the most important component of the whole event. When organising the funeral Tom Clarke was never in doubt as to who would deliver it. He had previously been impressed by Padraig Pearse's oratorical skills and duly enlisted him to deliver the message at the graveside.

Witness this now famous graveside oration every afternoon at 2.30pm, a defining moment in Irish History.
