Pearse “took a picture from the wall, burst the back and made a sketch of Moore St”

BMH

We put Connolly in a bed in a small room. Later, we took him to a bedroom over a chandler’s shop in Moore St. He was in pain in this removal as he had to be carried in a blanket through the opening that had been burst from house to house. I fell asleep in a corner of the room.

Some time on Saturday morning when I awoke all the leaders were there. Pearse sat at Connolly’s head on the right, a nurse on his left, Plunkett beside her. MacDermott was beside Pearse, Clarke and Sean McGarry were at the foot. Pearse was talking and, wanting to make a sketch, he took a picture from the wall, burst the back and made a sketch on it of Moore St. area. I then collected my rifles and went to the forward post. I did not see Connolly after that.
