Wife of Tom Clarke, mother, revolutionary, politician, widow, and Lord Mayor, Kathleen Clarke tells the inside story of the 1916 Rising.
The Clarke family were well known to many of the Athenry people as it was their custom to visit their small tobacco shop in Westland Row when they visited Dublin. Here they left their bags and coats while they went about their business in the city and a chosen few brought messages of insurrection from Tom and other city rebels to their counterparts in Athenry and Galway. Kathleen was well known to others from the Gaelic League meetings also!
