The Connolly Foundation, Scotland’s Irish charity has just launched its new website: see here.

The site offers information about Connolly and the activities and charitable purposes of The Connolly Foundation. The republican leader and political prisoner, James Connolly, was wounded during the Easter 1916 Rising and later executed by the British. Speaking of the website’s launch The Connolly Foundation Chair, Jim Slaven, said: “This website will provide valuable information for Scotland’s Irish community. As well as offering people regular updates on The Connolly Foundation’s activities it will feature regular articles and cover relevant news and events across Scotland. The website will also be a valuable educational resource offering people the most comprehensive James Connolly archive and web access to our various research projects.”
