Ned Daly Executed 1916

#OnThisDay 1916 Edward ‘Ned’ Daly was executed in Kilmainham Gaol. He told his sister, Kathleen Clarke (it has been argued that being Tom Clarke’s brother-in-law earmarked him for execution but it was most likely the staunch defence & British casualties inflicted, that he put up around the Four Courts area during the Rising), before his death that he was,

“glad and proud to die for his country & that he knew the week’s work would bring new life to Ireland.”

He was 25.
