The Cradle

I called this the cradle because it was the home of Pádraig Pearse, who it could be argued was the father of modern Ireland . He was executed in 1916 for leading an insurrection against English rule . As Ireland was a British colony at the time and of course WW1 was at it's worst, it was considered a treacherous act. He was a Teacher and poet with his own school in Dublin, this was his summer retreat in Rosmuck, west of Galway. It opens to the public during the summer months .
