    (transcript of accompanying audio) We motored into Dublin to Liberty Hall. Last time was nothing to it. The crowd had no beginning or end. I made a speech and we then formed up in a torchlight procession and went to St Patrick’s. Every window had a flag or candle or both. You never saw such excitement. <i>Letter from CM to Eva Gore-Booth (after March 1919) – Prison Letters p. 297</i>
