Thomas James Clarke was an Irish revolutionary leader and arguably the person most responsible for the 1916 Easter Rising. Clarke was stationed at headquarters in the GPO General Post Office in Dublin during the events of Easter Week. His image and quotes from and about him on a custom printed 100% cotton t-shirt.

The first signature to appear on the 
Proclamation is that of Tom Clarke
(Thomas J. Clarke) and it was an
honour wholly deserving of the man.
More than any other, Tom Clarke
had suffered for his ideals. Aged
fifty-nine, sixteen of those years had
been spent inside English jails,
and under conditions of misery
which would not be the unhappy
lot of even the humblest of animals.
…One wonders how, when the time
came, this man of iron viewed the
failure of the Rising, which was to
be his last act in a lifetime’s toil
and cruel suffering for the ideal
which he cherished" Rex Taylor

I have Lived to See the
Greatest Hour in Irish
History.

Message to the people of Ireland
I and my fellow signatories
believe we have struck the
first successful blow for
Irish freedom. The next
blow, which we have no
doubt Ireland will strike,
will win through. In this
belief, we die happy.”
