GUEST,Fred McCormick Origins: James Connolly as sang by Mary Black (21) RE: Origins: James Connelly as sung by Mary Black 25 Mar 15


Thompson. "Spelling James Connolly's name properly is less important than understanding his principles and his actions properly surely?"

Of course it is. But when the originator of the thread misspells his name and then someone else does likewise, a modicum of correction is called for.

My own view of Connolly is that he was one of the greatest labour leaders these islands ever produced. A very courageous and principled man, and a major intellect as well. And a man from whom we could still learn a lot.

When I was last in Edinburgh, I managed to walk right past the spot where he was born, without even realising it. Next time I'll check and see whether there's a plaque there honouring his name. If there isn't there damned well ought to be.
