WHO FEARS TO SPEAK OF 1798
-----------------------------------------
"Men, die like heroes; your country will remember you;
shed not the blood of the innocent; let not the word 
informer be written on the foreheads of your children."
Thus did Tom Connors of Ardristan encourage the 
three brave Maher brothers, his neighbours and fellow 
victims of abominable torture unto death on the triangle 
at Carlow Barracks, 25 May 1798. Taken down from the 
triangle Connors was tortured further until his final words
"My country and my God" presaged his death.

Unveiled by his great grand nephew Michael Nolan,
15 June 2003.
