For the great Gaels of Ireland Are the men that God made mad, For all their wars are merry, And all their songs are sad.
Thinkwhat I have got for Ireland? Something which she has wanted these past seven hundred years.WillMichael Collins
Ireland is one of the few countriesperhaps the lastwhere the boundaries between politics and art have never been fixed.

This rooting out of the Irish people; this transplanting of them from their native home into a foreign land, may be all very well, so far as the young people are concerned; but for the fathers and mothers who have reared families in Ireland, it is immediate decay and death.jeremiah o'donovan rossa

One of the most terrible things about the English education System in Ireland is its ruthlessness…it is cold and mechanical, like the ruthlessness of an immensely powerful engine. A machine vast, complicated… It grinds night and day; it obeys immutable and predetermined laws; it is as devoid of understanding, of sympathy, of imagination, as is any other piece of machinery that performs an appointed task.
