Cathal Brugha left for dead during Rising, still fights on 1916

#OnThisDay 1916 Cathal Brugha, second in command of the South Dublin Union garrison was badly wounded in an attack. So badly wounded in fact, that it was thought he would not survive his wounds, yet he still fired on British troops & sang “God Save Ireland”.
