Without Fear: Nurse Elizabeth O'Farrell


Notes

To Nurse O'Farrell, and the gallant women who toiled with her during Easter Week, 1916. You're not forgotten, and you'll not be airbrushed from history again. O'Farrell braved rifle fired when entrusted to deliver the unconditional surrender terms for Pearse, Connolly, and MacDonagh when it was decided the uprising was causing too much harm to the people of Dublin.
