The Irish flag flys in the courtyard of Kilmainham Gaol. This is the location where the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising were executed for there role. It’s a sombre space, and makes your think of how as human beings we seem to go to violence first. I’ve traveled a lot around the world, and fights for independence against imperial rulers seem always steeped in violence, and cruel oppression. . . . . #kilmainham #kilmainhamgaol #dublin #history #irish #europe #1916easterrising #1916rising #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller #independance #tricolour #vioence #imperialism #imperialrule #conflict
