TERENCE JOSEPH MCSWINEY, M.P.
Irish Lord Mayor of Cork and self-martyr by starvation
(1880 - 1920)

Our spirit is . . . to show ourselves eager to work for, and if need be, to die for the Irish Republic. Facing our enemy we must declare an attitude simply. . . . We ask for no mercy and we will make no compromise.
      - from a document in his possession when he was sentenced in Aug., 1920
        [Patriotism]

'Twere sweet to sink in death for Truth and Freedom!
  Yes, who would hesitate, for who could bear
    The living degradation we may know
      If we do dread death for a sacred cause?
      - lines written when a boy, in the "Nation", Nov. 3, 1920
        [Patriotism]
