#OnThisDay 1916 Seán Heuston was executed in Kilmainham Gaol. He wrote to his sister, a teacher…

Whatever I have done, I have done as a soldier of Ireland in what I believed to be my country’s best interests. I have, thank God no vain regrets. After all, it is better to be a corpse then a coward. Let you do your share by teaching Ireland’s history as it should be taught…. Ireland shall be free”
