The poem posted by PaddyMac on 22 Sept. 1999 was written by Liam Mac Gabhann I think the title is simply "Connolly"

Mac Gabhann "wrote in 'Rags, Robes and Rebels' that it was based on reading comments made by the son of a Welsh miner who was part of Connolly's firing squad who later asked Connolly's relatives to forgive him."

Lyrics from a booklet of James Connolly's own compositions are posted at Mudcat thread:
