Padraig Pearse Bust on Marble
Patrick Pearse, in full Patrick Henry Pearse, Patrick also spelled in Irish Pádraig, (born November 10, 1879, Dublin, Ireland—died May 3, 1916, Dublin), Irish nationalist leader, poet, and educator. He was the first president of the provisional government of the Irish republic proclaimed in Dublin on April 24, 1916, and was commander in chief of the Irish forces in the anti-British Easter Rising that began on the same day. Following his execution along with fifteen others, Pearse came to be seen by many as the embodiment of the rebellion.
