Easter Rising 1916 tea towel

The leaders of the Easter Rising in Ireland in 1916 wanted to "guarantee religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all citizens" in an independent republic, and sought to establish this through an open rather than covert challenge to the British state. The rebellion was mercilessly suppressed. This tea towel shows the statue of Ireland atop the General Post Office which became the rebellion headquarters. The names of those subsequently executed are listed.

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 19in x 27.5in. Machine wash at 110 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
