These fotos were taken at Kilmainham Jail in Dublin on my short visit there last year. The plaque reflects the men killed by the English crown after the Easter proclamation.

Snapped this last foto in Golden Gate Park San Francisco. The staute had been located near Steinhart Aquarium but has been moved off the lawn. On a visit there as a youngster we were asked by a man to help him find the statue of Robert Emmet. Top three from Kilmainham Jail where Emmet and many other Irish patriots were executed.

If I were a sculptor
I would chisel out of marble
The likeness of a patriot
And carve on the pedestal
The Name Robert Emmet.
