Robert Emmet

"Let no man write my epitaph."
The defiant rebel said.
"Let no woman eulogize me
After I am dead."

"I give my life for Ireland-
An Ireland strong and free
An Ireland that‘s united,
One free of tyranny."

"When my country takes its rightful place
Among nations of the world.
That day I will not live to see
When our banner is unfurled."

"On that day, and only then
Let my suffering be recalled-
and that I died for Liberty-
The sweetest death of all."
